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.
