Well, the short answer is there is no list, but it looks like if you do want to get a
PC SCSI disk for a Sun system, the only worry will be how to connect it to your system.
External should be fine with correct cable internal may be a little harder. (Not forgetting
that Sun will not support it!)

Your best bet is to buy from Sun, since cost is not that much different or to ask the
manufactory if it will work. The big boys - Fujitsu, Quantum and Seagate - would be best.
