A free driver is at
Installing info.
On solaris 2.5 i've got no chance to get the mo drive running. On solaris 2.6
you must set the scsi_options to asynchronous (i don't know the parameter,
could anybody help me?) and 'boot -r' should work but you can it only use with
512 Byte blocks.
We have a Fujitsu M2513A and want to use it with 2048 Byte blocks (under linux
it works). We are looking for a free solution.
Thanks to all who have mailed to me.
