    Linux treats everything as part of the directory structure including hardware. Hardware devices will generally be found in the /dev directory. Match the following:

    1. /dev/hda
    2. /dev/hdb
    3. /dev/hdc
    4. /dev/sda
    5. /dev/sdb

    a. First SCSI hard disk
    b. IDE hard disk, master on the second IDE controller
    c. IDE hard disk, master on the first IDE controller
    d. Second SCSI hard disk
    e. IDE hard disk, slave on the first IDE controller

    Answers later.

    My punt is below but 2 and 3 might be the other way round?

    1. /dev/hda = c. IDE hard disk, master on the first IDE controller

    2. /dev/hdb = b. IDE hard disk, master on the second IDE controller

    3. /dev/hdc = e. IDE hard disk, slave on the first IDE controller

    4. /dev/sda = a. First SCSI hard disk

    5. /dev/sdb = d. Second SCSI hard disk

    The hd*'s dont need to be hard disks, they can be cd drives or anything connected to the IDE cable. The same for the sd*'s. My mp3 playerer and usb hard drive get loaded as sda or sdb.

    ... Just saying :D
