creating /dev/hd[m-t]

With woody, I got a system with 20 IDE drives (5 IDE cards).  The kernel
in finding all of them but /dev/MAKEDEV seems to only know how to make
up to /dev/hdl:

ds2:/dev# ./MAKEDEV hdl
ds2:/dev# ./MAKEDEV hdm
./MAKEDEV: don't know how to make device "hdm"

but I need up to /dev/hdt, I think I know what the major and minor
numbers to use as I have another distro (Mandrake) running on a similar
system that figured out all the drive letters but I wish to bet a better
way to figure this out then "install another Linux and look" in the

Where do I look, even in the code if necessary, to find this out?
