It was pointed out that the drive I listed was a half-height drive and the
Sparc 4 requires a low-profile drive. I bought a SEAGATE ST34501WC and it's
working fine. Unfortunately I'm only able to use it as a 2Gb drive.
probe-scsi and scsiinfo recognize it correctly. format and sysinfo think it's a
  SYMBIOS-INF-01-00-9300" 1.9 GB disk drive
Can a Sparc 4 running Solaris 2.6 boot off a drive larger than 2Gb?
