Once again, thank you for your timely, and EXCELLENT replies. My
original question was:
> Managers,

The answer is that the installations of DiskSuite and Veritas cause
entries to be placed in the /etc/system file. These entries are for the
of loading modules that will be used by the DiskSuite or Veritas
The modules cover things like hotsparing, mirroring, RAID-5, etc. Any
the modules that are not used will cause the output of a warning when
system attempts to load them during bootup. If these warnings are
to the sys-admin that sees them, they can be stopped by commenting out
offending lines in the /etc/system file. The attempt to forceload the
however, is completely harmless.
