    I have two things to comment upon:

    1) I didn't know one could have more than 4 EIDE devices. For which bus
    architecture is this true for? PCI or ISA? How does this works? (I'm just
    technically curious since I've got all 4 EIDE devices in my system and
    have three more hard disks going begging that I'd love to reuse)

    2) You've omitted partitions/slices from your suggestions. c0b0t0u0 is
    still necessary to refer to the individual partition on that IDE device.

    Cheers,
    Alex
