"/dev/scsi/host1/bus0/target2/lun0/generic" is a devfs-ism. My understanding is udev doesn't subdivide the /dev heirarchy in this fashion, although I'm sure it could be made to do so. That's the kind of thing I've seen references to. -- Lindsay Haisley | "Everything works | PGP public key FMP Computer Services | if you let it" | available at 512-259-1190 | (Travis W.
