    Heh. Back in the days before the earth cooled, Slackware used the
    following hard drive devnames:

    current: old slackware way:
    /dev/hda /dev/hda
    /dev/hdb /dev/hdb
    /dev/hdc /dev/hd1a
    /dev/hdd /dev/hd1b

    Now, don't we want to avoid this kind of foolishness? Nothing against
    slackware, and i realize that you can call the nodes whatever the heck you
    want, but this was STUPID. :) I personally hate the Slowaris method of
    naming disks. It is painful on the eyes, and i just make symlinks to the
    nice linux names instead. :)
