This is completely normal. The first scsi device found will map
to sd0, the second device found will map to sd1, etc.
Example: suppose a given system has these SCSI devices
SCSI ID device
I have the information at home, but each partition maps something
Usr b (?)
So Root&Usr for sd0 is sd0a and the swap partition is sd0g.
A Usr-only partition would be sd0b.
I can't remember how the rest of the partitions are labeled.
I think they are just assigned c-f. The labels don't go past
g or h. I believe 8 partitions is the max you can have for
Allen can correct any inaccuracies here.
