But the good thing is, that you can tell udev to use some other device
than the default one (at least with a recent 2.6 kernel):

$ grep iriver /etc/udev/rules.d/local.rules
BUS="scsi", SYSFS{model}="MK2004GAL", NAME{all_partitions}="iriver"

This makes my iriver always appear as /dev/iriver with the usual
partition number appended:

$ grep iriver /etc/fstab
/dev/iriver1 /media/iriver vfat rw,user,noauto,codepage=850,utf8 0 0
