Solaris 8 (Intel Platform Edition) Device Configuration Guide

Special Files

For PC Card devices, nodes are created in /devices that include the socket number as one component of a device name that the node refers to. However, the /prtc/dev names and the names in /dev/dsk and /dev/rdsk do follow the current convention for ATA devices, which do not encode the socket number in any part of the name. See the pcata(7D) man page.
