Which drive? IBM has a number of 2GB drives, and I know definitely that
one of them (0664) doesn't work in a R3k Indigo at all. OTOH, SGI OEMed
some IBM drives, so it isn't all of them (the 0664 was originally from
a RS/6000 AFAIK).
The Hitachi site has setup sheets still for many old IBM drives - see
if there's a "spinup on power-on" jumper.
