Hmm, well, that makes it (for me) harder.
If they all have similar mounting options (e.g., RO, things like that), and
the mount points correspond to some system (e.g., /dev/sd<device_letter><n>
gets mounted on /mnt/<mountpoint><n>), then you might modify the mount command
in that loop appropriately, e.g.:
mount /dev/sd<device_letter><n> /mnt/<mountpoint><n> <options>
Or, if groups of those devices have mountpoints that correspond to some
system, then you could haved multiple for loops to do the groups.
Or you could put mount commands in a file, one line per file, and run a for
loop on the lines of the file, or some variation of this.
