I'm trying to load Debian

Alternate cylinders (0-65535, default 2):
Physical cylinders (0-65535, default 35003): "4462"
Rotation speed (rpm) (1-100000, default 5400): "10000"
Interleave factor (1-32, default 1):
Extra sectors per cylinder (0-32, default 0):

an Ultra Sparc? If so, could you kindly direct me to
where I might find the appropriate information to get this drive properly
Any advice would be greatly
