There's been a lot of talk recently about vrefnums, so I got a few
questions:

1)  What exactly is a volume reference number, how are they assigned, etc.
2)  How can you get the vrefnum of a volume if you know it's name and/or
    SCSI address?
3)  How do you get the vrefnum of the startup disk?
4)  How do vrefnums on shared disks work?
5)  What's the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and
    everything?


Thanks.  :)

It's better when you're alone because nobody knows you.
It's better when you have no friends because nobody leaves you.
