OK, thanks. I'll give this a shot. I really ought to be running devfs on
the box, as I am on others I run, but have been too lazy/busy to set it up.
Devfs would take care of this if I put the sg module in /etc/modules, and if
it's really the issue then I'll probably take the time to set things up
better. I solved the immediate problem by referencing the drive as an IDE
rather than a SCSI device, so I could get my customer's work done, but if
this turns out to be a proper fix then I'll use it.
