->Just an info on something I could fiund nowhere
(searched the device namings section of FreeBSD handbook,
books, other forums..etc)
I know that IDE ATAPI cdrom drive is
acd0 = 1st IDE ATAPI cdrom
acd1 = 2nd IDE ATAPI cdrom
acd2 = 3rd IDE ATAPI cdrom
My question: When should it be a,b,c,d,e at the end
on the cdrom device naming?
For example, I have a CDROM that is slave on IDE1
(/dev/acd1)...There's no partitioning for that CD..
what letter would be attributed to it.
And if additionaly, I would have a second CDROM,
master on IDE2 (/dev/acd2)...how should it work for it?
OS that I have -> FreeBSD 5.1
