With the Tracer driver, the DRM-600 appears to be six independent devices
(one per platter), each with its own block and character special files.
You can mount them anywhere you want, e.g.,
mount -r /dev/drm0a /answerbook
mount -rt hsfs /dev/drm0b /sunCD
and so forth. In addition, you can say
cdplayer -d /dev/rdrm0c
to listen to the audio tracks on the disk in position 3 (c) in the caddy
Once you have mounted the file systems, you can export them to other
machines via nfs. Platter switching occurs transparently (except for the
time taken), on demand.
I can't comment on how other drivers work.
