when your scsi controller detects the drive, the drive will be named 
according to the controller's scheme... no dec rz's.  for instance if the 
existing scsi drive on that machine is sda, then the new drive will be 
sdb.  the partitions will be sdb1, sdb2 etc. 

 so: mount -t ufs /dev/sdb1 /mnt/xxx

where xxx is a directory you make under /mnt which will be the mount point 
for that partition.

hope this helps
