  I've seen it mentioned here before, but didn't find it on the list:
when initially installing, there are no device files for SCSI cdrom or
tape. Not knowing enough of *nix to fix this myself, I was lucky I had
moved my old slackware stuff to another partition, so I could steal it's
MAKEDEV script. Debian should either simply include _all_ device files
(how big are they anyway), or include a MAKEDEV-alike script (and
document it's existence!) so users can do this themselves.
