Oh, Linux. Eww. Then, yeah, I think scd0 is what you want.
Everywhere -else-, if foo0 is a block device, rfoo0 is a raw
character device, which is what you want to use when doing
character-stream operations like dd. Of course, if you're using
solaris, you have to look in a different directory for the raw
devices. I'm sure someone thought it was a cute idea.
