The Linux kernel ALWAYS has multilun support, there is no option to switch
that off. However, you can enable or disable the SCANNING of all luns at
startup of a device/controller. Because many cd-roms (also via the SCSI
emulation) respond to every LUN ID, this option is switched off in
Knoppix to avoid up to 7 icons for a single CD-Rom.

But /sbin/hotplug-knoppix scans all LUNs automatically on
insertion of a new USB storage device, in order to find media in
multislot card readers for example. That feature is not available after
turning Knoppix back into a normal Debian system with knx-hdinstall, of

debian-knoppix mailing list
