1. 9 GB disks on DEC 3000 workstations?


   I've need to up the storage capacity on my DEC 3000 Alpha workstation.
I'd like to put a 9 GB SCSI disk in it, but I can't get a real answer
out of Digital as to whether the computer and VMS support this size disk.  

   Has anyone out there put such a thing in such a workstation?  It seems
to me that Digital is still a step behind the times when it comes to
peripherals (hard disks, CD ROM support, etc).
