I am not sure if my question was completely understood (or I am
unfamiliar enough to not understand a good answer).

I just used the USB keyboard and mouse with a printer as an example.
Lets say I want the scanner and a printer.  Lets say the scanner is SCSI
and the printer is USB.  So I would need to add the following to the
workstation section in lts.conf:

MODULE_01 = usb-ohci
MODULE_02 = printer
MODULE_03 = mousedev
MODULE_04 = usbmouse

MODULE_01 = sym53c416
MODULE_02 = sgi

Now my question is would the above be correct, or should the MODULE for
the SCSI card start at MODULE_05 - 06?  Example below:

MODULE_01 = usb-ohci
MODULE_02 = printer
MODULE_03 = mousedev
MODULE_04 = usbmouse

MODULE_05 = sym53c416
MODULE_06 = sgi

I guess my question isn't really pertaining to how to get specific
devices to work, just theoretically if I had to load more than one
device per client what would the proper syntax be.  Is LTSP smart enough
to look at each instance of MODULE_01 as a new device and just know that
every module specifice in sequence thereafter is just settings
pertaining to the MODULE_01?

I hope this is more clear.

Thanks,
