How can I know the hardware device path eg. CDROM , tape, external device, I use ¡§ioscan¡¨ in UNIX, what is the command in Linux ? Thx.

I don't think there is a specific command for that. But 'dmesg | less' should show you most of the information.

fdisk -l will show you your hard drive and partitions on them.

or even a cat /proc/mounts

Usually other devices such as cdroms or floppys, cdrom is just going to be like /dev/hdc if its the master on the secondary IDE channel, hdd if its the slave.. and so on. If you have a floppy drive, its usually /dev/fd0

Also to add you can always look at your /etc/fstab for some devices as well.
