[linux-lvm] 12 x UDMA disks -- problems



I am trying to use 12x37Gig UDMA disks off 3 Promise/Ultra-66 ide
controlers providing 6 ide chains.  However, MAKEDEV will only create
devices hd[a-l] --- I need in addition devices hd[m-p].  I looked in the
MAKEDEV script, and can see two places where I can extend the devices to
inlude these, but am stumped whith the lines

...
...
major=`Major ide4 56`
major=`Major ide5 57`

For ide6 and ide7, how do I determine the Major numbers?

Any help appreciated.
