I'm most likely to attach these to a Sun SPARCstation 5. I believe it
has Solaris on it, or maybe even SunOS. If that doesn't work (wrong
type of SCSI?), I may get out the Sun 3/110, which is definately SunOS
and not Solaris, but I haven't powered up either of these two systems
since I acquird them.
I just figured that Sun + SCSI + dd = least hassles.
Is that a reasonable assumption?
