how can usb-storage device attach to specific /dev/sd*

Hi, I had a machine with FastTrak raid controller, also a usb-harddisk. The problem is when machine boot up, sometimes it attach the raid as /dev/sda or /dev/sdb randomly, and the machine would not boot up then. Is there is a solution that can attach raid or the usb-harddisk to pre-defined device (/dev/sda or /dev/sdb)?

I had tried '"echo "scsi add-single-devie 2 0 0 0" > /proc/scsi/scsi', also some add "alias block-major-8-16 usb-storage" to /etc/modules.conf. Both methods does not work.

I am currently use Redhat 8 with Kernel 2.4.20.

Thanks a lot in advance
