Thats odd, at least for here. Here I have a dvd writer as /dev/hdc,
and a 200gig drive as /dev/hdd. Its the virtual tapes for amanda.
It Just Works(TM).
Using the M/S jumpers and normal cables, I have never had (since the
atapi crap finally got sorted about 6 or 7 years back) a problem that
required I move a drives identity jumper block from where I'd already
put it. Thats from a 3 machine database, with about 10 drives of
various flavors installed.
Any particular reason it shouldn't work?
