SS20 and SCA disk problem (not SDA...)

    Hi,
    A friend of mine gave me SS20 with a super-noisy HD (even my dogs
    bark at it...). Now, I have three Quantum Viking 4.5 SCA (in exchange of a
    to high disk I bought for 60$), but only two in the SS20. Open boot can see
    them, even Solaris8, but I'm unable to format them. I installed Linux on
    the noisy disk (I use linux, but when the disk will work, I'll probably
    switch to Solaris) and there is no differences.

    When I start linux, the disks get detect. in dmesg, I get


    [...]

    When I try fdisk /dev/sd[bc], I get

    SCSI disk error : host 0 channel 0 id 1 lun 0 return code = 28000000

    0x09
    scsidisk I/O error: dev 08:10, sector 0

    Unable to read /dev/sdb

    Sinse I'm not an expert and my friend is gone for at lease a mounth or two,
    I don't realy know what to do. I'd like to make those disk work and use my
    SS20, I don't like to see a dual CPU standing there and doing nothing :eek:)

    Thankx for helping,

    Ripley
