Hi!

I've a IDE hard disk in /dev/discs/disc0 and when pluged also a IOMAGE
external zip drive (Paralel port with SCSI drivers) in /dev/discs/disc1.

Problem:
If I decide to  install a new IDE harddisk, all my configurations are
wrong.
I don't see in documentation how to force the new drive IDE to be disc2.

There are a simpler methods? How to handle this?
