You know, MS isn't the only one that does this... the Linux SCSI
implementation would assign /dev/sda to the lowest SCSI ID on the chain,
so if you went back and added a new drive who's ID was lower than the
drives you've already had, all of your drive letters would move up by
one, 'causing no end of trouble.

'Course, this is not a problem if you use devfs, but not very many
people do yet.

M, just keeping us all honest.  :)
