I have a Dell Latitude CSx H laptop that I just installed with RH 8.0.
The laptop has an external IDE port to which you can attach either a
special CDROM or a floppy drive, both of which come with the laptop.
On Win2000 the drives are hot-pluggable, so I only plugged them in
when I needed one. With RH, if I do not have the device connected
during boot, it won't recognize the drive. Also, if I remove the
drive after boot and try to reconnect, the drive is not recognized any
Is there some script or program I could run after connecting either
drive, to have the system recognize it? I tried to read up about this
and some document mentioned magicdev, but I can not find a man page on
it and it does not seem to have any effect, at least not without
