My original question:

> Question: Does the Hitachi (or any other) disk need to be

> to the 7053?

The [great!] answers from multiple sources: YES. In addition,
it is most wise to save the defects list for the disk, either
onto another (already) formatted media, or onto tape. In my
case, I had another disk with SunOS installed, formatted for the
7053 controller, so I saved the defects to disk on the 7053
disk (mounted on the system while running from the 451 - both
controllers were in the system for a while.) then re-booted using
the xd (7053) controller, and performed the format.

Thanks to the many respondents for your help.
