I've been looking at the source code to a cd-ripper, and I've noticed that is uses what is ha, tgt, and lun to designate the cd-rom drive to use.  What is what is ha, tgt, and lun for, and is there a way to figure out the logical driver letter from those values?

'ha' is probably "host adapter" this identifies which SCSI (or pseudo-scsi) channel to use.
'tgt' is probably "target" device id.  Each device on a SCSI chain has a unique ID 0-15.
'lun' is probably "logical unit number". usually used to identify logical volumes within a physical device.
