  Nope. Tech support indicates Solaris will never support a card
as cheap as this ($80). Have to go with the $200 1542C .

  Being a Sony, it will probably work; the blocksize must be set
to 2048, so I'm told.

  Not bloody likely. I am very curious how SunSoft expects a migration
to their product if they refuse to support common (and cheap) products.
If Linux supports Mitsumi drives, why not a large company ?
