Thanks to all who responded; it appears that I should have called Sun first
(although the response from this list is much faster than Sun customer

Responses from Benoit, Angel and Drew pointed out that there are system
patches that deal with the Hitachi drive problem. These patches are noted in
Benoit's posted summary to this list.

115662-01 Hardware/Firmware: LSI1030 U320 SCSI controller
116369-01 Hardware 36GB SCSI Disk Drive Patch : Download program and SCSI
Disk Drive firmware
115274-03 SunOS 5.8: /usr/sbin/raidctl patch
115275-02 SunOS 5.8: mpt driver patch
108974-37 SunOS 5.8: dada, uata, dad, sd, ssd and scsi drivers patch
115846-02 Hardware/PROM: Sun Fire V440 Flash PROM Update

To anyone who I made nervous about my use of fsck, I run it at user level S.
That issue may be completey separate from the drive problem. I'll know after
I get the patches installed.
