SCSI device name
What is the device name for a SCSI drive? For IDE, it's /dev/hda, /dev/hdb /dev/hdc, or /dev/hdd. What is it for SCIS?

/dev/sdx where X is the same as it is for IDE devices.

Ooh, nearly forgot. That is for harddisk-like devices. Scsi CD drives will be /dev/scd? where ? is a number. And any ide devices that use scsi emulation will also appear as standard scsi devices with standard scsi device names. Use cdrecord -scanbus to see what you have.
