There should be a 'raw' application available with RH 6.2 which
will bind the raw device to some block device.
What you'd want is:
mknod /dev/raw c 162 0
mknod /dev/raw2 c 162 2
Then you'd run:
raw /dev/raw2 /dev/sdb4
(or something to that effect).
You can get the latest raw.c from the util-linux RPM off of freshmeat.net.
If you still have problems finding it, send a mail here.
