I don't know if this is right group...
I have about 200-300 CD-ROM images, that I would like to mount
and export over Samba for Windows clients.
Now I do it with simple script:
mknod /dev/fileN 43 N
vnconfig /dev/fileN /somewhere/fileN
mount -t cd9660 /dev/fileN /somewhere-else/fileN
Problem is in generation of N numbers.
Now, I generate them, and I get:
vnconfig: VNIOCATTACH: Device busy (this message is generated by mount)
Questions are: what is maximal number of devices I can configure,
and what is the key to generate numbers for special files.
