SUMMARY: Disksuite and cdrom removal on Sunfire v120.

Hi all,

This is a non issue. Removing the Cdrom made no difference
to the Disksuite config at all. Thanks to Darren Dunham
who was key to getting me to question my assumptions.

Having been burnt getting jumpstart to work with these
sunfires, where there is some relationship between disk
device names and the presence or absence of a Cdrom, I 
was sure that Disksuite would have similar bother. None
of it!

A "probe-scsi-all" before and after removal of the cdrom
only showed the expected change. And "format" was
similarly unaffected. 

Regards Fergus.
