Hey Tim,

Running 'mknod sdc b 8 32' worked great.  I could fdisk and the data
looked good.  However, when I rebooted to start from a clean slate,
sdc disappeared again.  Is there something that must be done to make
the 'mknod' change permanent?  Or perhaps something else is wiping it
away and overriding what I've done?
