The second device you plug in will probably show up as
/dev/sdb1 (but I haven't used that.)
you may also want to check out using devfsd if you have
a recent enough kernel. devfsd dynamically adds and removes
devices from the /dev hierarchy. and the naming has become
and so on. So your two devices, when plugged in, should
generate unique entries under the /dev/scsi hierarchy.
but again my only hot pluggable device is a cd burner.
I have never tried to plug another device in at the same
time. But I'ld be pretty frustrated if it didn't work the
way I expect. (I'm frustrated a lot of the time ;-)
