I have Sparc 5 with SunOS 5.4, solaris 2.4.  I did:
volcheck and I don't see floppy device or /vol/dev/rdisk0
But when I boot the system with option -r to reconfig and I can see the raw device /vol/dev/rdisk0 (with volcheck ofcourse) but no floppy device.  Anyone have any idea how to get this floppy device working?
