- I know that this is not a disklabel problem. sd@1 has been in here
for ages. But FWIW, yes, they're all aligned.
- The message comes from the PROM, not the bootloader.
FWIW, it is the *PROM* that cares about partitions starting on cylinder
boundaries (it doesn't care whether they are aligned at the end).
Is this a symptom, perhaps, of only certain kinds of SCSI disks having
been "blessed" by Sun? I can't see that, really; all disks in question
are SCA -- the other three are 50-pin ribbon SCSI (narrow SCSI-2) in
a tower, and it doesn't give me any hassle about them.
i've never heard any such thing. BTW, have you reinstalled bootblocks and
re-labelled the disk, just to make sure?
