SubjectRE: adding scsi devices

if you have only one scsi card your host would be 0. If it has only one scsi
channel then the channel would be 0, the id is the scsi id on the drive could
be 0 to 7 depending on the configuration and the lun should be 0.

the command is for adding a scsi device that you may have forgotten to turn on
before system powerup. syntax is:

echo "scsi add-single-device <host> <channel> <id> <lun>" > /proc/scsi/scsi

I have used this to add my jaz drive after the systems is running.

you could also shutdown your machine, add the device, and restart. This is the
best solution. If you have problems restarting check the scsi id's of all devic
currently connected.
