Beg to disagree on rescan-scsi-bus.sh finding any Firewire. Not here. My
BUSLink is not detected. It's an external CDRW drive.
Again, this device is found with ol RH 9 but not Severn.
Any further advice would be welcome.

Thanks to all who replied and gave suggestions. I tried Ben Hsu's advice,
and ran rescan-scsi-bus.sh
it finds and assigns all the id's correctly.
as for the CDROM drive, for now, I turned off smartd, and it works fine.
As for the USB/FireWire Storage ...
I have a USB "all-in-one" card reader for my camera, and my firewire drive,
if both are hooked up to the same computer, the USB storage kicks in first,
so the USB device gets /dev/sda , and Firewire gets /dev/sdb
I have to see how the card reads when I have a memory stick, and a SD card
in at the same time, will it then push the firewire out to sdc ?
I will do a clean install of Beta 2 this weekend, to see if the installer
has fixed the issue, if not I guess we'll see how to make it work in beta 2.
Once beta 2 comes out, i'll document my findings and put it up on the web
for all to see.
