Expect to see fewer hard drives.

It wouldn't let me. The os is Solaris 2.4. When I booted single-user I
still had to feed it the root P/W which I didn't have.

I never did get the root PW. Apparently the admin was a conciencious
one. I broke the machine by running Jack on the drive on a Linux
machine, got a few passwords and usernames, then set the prom date way
back. When Solaris booted and I fed it the user's (not root) PW, the
machine bombed to a root prompt with a message something like
(irrational date). It freaked the machine that a user who'd not been
created yet just logged on. I got root that way, changed root pw from
there and on I went.

Why did you need to do that? Why couldn't you just boot single-user from
ROM and get a root shell?
