I consider myself fairly proficient at Slackware Linux, but for the life of me I cannot find out how to mount different USB drives as /dev/sda1.
The problem is that I have a script that makes a backup of Windows boxes, and dumps the files from the windows boxes in a mounted USB HD. The drives are rotated daily. Once the first drive is unmounted, and the second one plugged in, it is recognized as /dev/sdb. How in the heck can I get the second drive to be recognized as /dev/sda without rebooting the server???
