I apologize for my own boneheaded error in the Subject line (4.1.1 was
specified instead of what I intended, 4.1.2). Please *do* forgive.
Despite this, the replies answered my question: Yes, it is possible to
format a Seagate Wren 8 drive under 4.1.2 (although Sun's position is: use
third party at your own peril).
The Sun 1.3GB entry in /etc/format.dat entry (under 4.1.2) can be used for
1.6GB raw (1.2GB formatted).

or this entry for the Seagate:

For their kindness and expertise, I would like to thank:
