Nope. Don't have one. IIUC, to connect an external SCSI
CD-ROM drive to a SPARC and expect it to be able to boot, it has to
be a pretty special drive anyway -- it has to support small sectors,
Since Belgium is the cultural backwater of the Internet, and
is the only third-world country in a first-world continent, there is
nothing remotely like Fry's or Micro Center where you can go down and
buy something like this.
The largest computer stores in the country are smaller than
the smallest Mom-n-Pop computer stores you'd find in the US, so they
don't stock much of anything at all.
Indeed, the best place I've found to buy most computer
equipment is a French department store called "Fnac", and even that
is a very, very poor fourth-best for the most common types of
hardware and software that exist in the world.
