No, superformat doesn't work, it fails during calibration. (Anybody 
has this working on an alpha?) But I meant the disks anyway, not the 
drive. I had to try serveral disks until it worked. But I think there 
were some kind of error messages.

At what stage does booting fail? When loading milo, the kernel or the 
root file system? Any error messages?

Unfortunately, I cannot reboot the machine now (or in the next few 
days). So I can't test it.
