Hi

Interesting question and it is already answered at stackoverflow here is the link: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1823743/knowing-a-device-special-file-major-and-minor-numbers-in-linux and study the first answer which contains all information. IMHO one of the best answers about mknod, IBM's documentation is also great: http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/aix/v6r1/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm.aix.cmds/doc/aixcmds3/mknod.htm

-HTH
