How many SCSI CD-ROM drives can Linux support? I want to hook up two or
three 6-8 CD jukeboxes to a linux box, but I notice that we only have
/dev/scd[0..7] devices... is it possible to just make more nodes in /dev
for the additional devices?

I believe the hard limit is 256 (the number of minor devices). I've run 14
without any problems. I just had to create the device files.
