Device naming with the 2.6.20 kernel

Well, really, it’s the result of updates to LibATA. Man, I really haven’t been keeping up my Linux knowledge. Anyway, I happened across this post about it and it’s worth reading if you have any confusion about how disks are named. A hint: all SCSI and ATA (PATA and SATA) are now /dev/sd* and ATAPI devices like CD and DVD drives are /dev/sr*
