		SCSI device information.
Sorry, I cannot open: /proc/scsi/scsi.
Please check your permissions with
your supervisor. The feature may not
be compiled and\or enabled in your
kernel version. Or a scsi device, eg,
a USB drive may not be attached.

Check this program out for yourself and see what you think of it. Suggestions for improvements are welcome.
