Re: [edlug] travel drive



I "think" it is the norm for linux to treat USB and other serial/ parallel
port block devices as /dev/sd?

The old parallel port zip drives required (and still do require AFAIK) a
SCSI driver for them to work.

So though not a Suse advocate, you may be being a bit quick to condemn.

Cheers,

James
