You can only have seven partitions (unless you use slice 2 for non-standard
purposes) instead of 4x7 as before, so you may need to combine some partitions.
My personal preference suggests moving /, /var, /usr and /opt into one
partition when moving.
Some PROMS have problems with large first partitions, so ideally you limit
the 0 slice to less than 1 GB.
After copying everything to disk you 'll need to runn "installboot" to
install the bootblock on the new disk.
I'm not sure whether it's wise to move all data to 1 9GB disk, you're
creating one big bottleneck for all data accesses.

I have been installing 2.6 on Sparc 5's and Sparc 20's.
I tried to boot a 5 off of a set of disks that were created
using a 20. It wouldn't boot.
So I tried to boot a 20 off of a set of disks created using
a 5. Also, it wouldn't boot.
In both cases, the machines were looking for slices 7 and 13,
while they should have been looking for slices 0 and 6.
So therefore, the machines couldn't find / or /usr.
Either set of drives will properly boot the machine that they
were created with.
I checked the environment and aliases and can't find anything
that sticks out as wrong.
Any ideas as to what to look at?
