Not quite... It's oversimplifying the situation just a bit. It would be like that if you had drives on hda, hdb, and so on. But if you had drives on hda and hdc, and nothing at hdb they'd be hd0 and hd1, not hd0 and hd2. It counts the drive starting from 0 upwards, and doesn't skip any numbers. You don't even have to start from hda. I have a system like this: /dev/hda zip /dev/hdb not used /dev/hdc DVD /dev/hdd CD /dev/hde HDD /dev/hdf HDD The last two are hd0 and hd1. -- (Currently running FC4, occasionally trying FC5.)
