Does this work for cciss/c0d0 devices as well?

or can I just name it image.001 image.002 and it will still work?
Good point, the image files have got to be called hda* or sda* or whatever they have been called at image creation time. The idea is, PING will try to restore hda* files to /dev/hda, and if it doesn't find such a dev, will propose all the devices that have been detected. If you decide once that hda will target sda, then hda1* files will be restored to sda1 and hda2* to sda2 etc. with no more question. cciss/rd/ida/mapper devices should work the same way.
