Is this what you mean? I have an adaptec1520 SCSI card. The install was not
able to autoprobe it, I had to specify options.

sh-2.03$ ls /dev/sg*
/dev/sg0 /dev/sg13 /dev/sg3 /dev/sg8 /dev/sgd /dev/sgi /dev/sgn
/dev/sg1 /dev/sg14 /dev/sg4 /dev/sg9 /dev/sge /dev/sgj /dev/sgo
/dev/sg10 /dev/sg15 /dev/sg5 /dev/sga /dev/sgf /dev/sgk /dev/sgp
/dev/sg11 /dev/sg16 /dev/sg6 /dev/sgb /dev/sgg /dev/sgl /dev/sgq
/dev/sg12 /dev/sg2 /dev/sg7 /dev/sgc /dev/sgh /dev/sgm
