So at work we have been building these dual opteron workstations with four
onboard SATA controllers, couple of SATA drives and two IDE optical drives.
A DVD-rom and a DVD-burner. Both of which were on the same channel. What I
wondered was why the second drive (burner) couldn't be mounted at /dev/hdb
when the first was mounted as /dev/hda?
I mean, the system has onboard SCSI too. But the burner had to be mounted as
sdba or something...forgot the exact letters...
