I'm building a new kernel to add support for second

the wrong place -- boo!).
When devices in configuration file are wildcarded,
how does kernel assign identifiers to them? I am
*guessing* (haven't found the right man(1) page
to clarify this :< ) that they are enumerated in
the order declared in the config file?
Ooops! Not quite that simple. :< (sure would be
nice to have three-dimensional consoles to present
some of this stuff!! :>)
OK, I think I've sussed it out. Thanks!
