 The Linux Kernel's SCSI Subsystem

Linux Planet takes a look at the Linux Kernel's SCSI Subsystem.

"Every device on your system and many that aren't physically there is represented by a file in the /dev directory. There are three types of devices: block, character, and network. Block devices are dealt with in chunks, and typically are storage items, such as disks. Character devices, on the other hand, deal with individual bits and bytes usually processed right away."
