Thanks, I should have known it was a stupid question ;-)

I thought that I had one externl disk drive and two tape drives so I only hooked up the disk drive. The one box with a tape drive in it also has sd0 inside. Now I have got that plugged in as well it all works apart from the extra tape drive which I haven't connected yet.

There is also no panic about the forgotten root password as whoever decomissioned the machine set it to null. It is a good job that I just tried logging in as root out of curiosity before going to the effort of bypassing the login and resetting the password :)

It looks as if sd0 is 100Mb and sd4 appears to be 270Mb with penty of free space on both.

According to uname -a it is running SunOS 4.1.1
