SunOS 4.0 doesn't run on the Sun Ultra 10 (SunOS 5.5.1 or later) nor
the SPARCstation 10 (SunOS 4.1.3 or later).

since you are referring to EIDE disks it must be an Ultra 10 but that
platform only runs SunOS 5.5.1 (Solaris 2.5.1) or later, you need
to double-check your OS version. run "uname -sr".

if you want to use an EIDE disk larger than 8GB on SPARC hardware you
need to use Solaris 7 or later; Solaris 8 10/00 or later for disks
larger than 32GB. *or* buy the 20gb eide disks from Sun that have
correct c/h/s geometry in their firmware, they'll work with any
Solaris version but are probably more expensive than the generic
eide disks that don't report the correct c/h/s geometry.
