Is there a General Devices or if you just throw that arbitrarly from the top of your mind?

Searching and found "Hotplug firmware loading support" in Generic Driver Options.

section 1. in the howto shows a little error.

Code:

# CONFIG_DEVFS_FS is not set   <--- Can say 'Y' if want, will have to add devfs=nomount to boot-loader to boot with udev.

it should be (iirc):
Code:

# CONFIG_DEVFS_FS is not set   <--- Can say 'Y' if want, will have to add gentoo=nodevfs to boot-loader to boot with udev.

Im having some trouble...
I just formatted and did another stage 1 install
from knoppix and compiled in support for the stuff
needed for udev, and took out devfs...
I deleted all the stuff in my /dev and added
null and console.
I emerged grub and tried:
Code:
grub-install --no-floppy --root-directory=/boot /dev/hdb

(my hd is on /dev/hdb)

and I get:
Code:
/dev/hdb: Not found or not a block device.

because I wiped out my /dev directory...
I tried
Code:
running /etc/init.d/hotplug start


but I dont see anything being added to /dev

Anyone have any suggestions?

----
Ok I got passed that but now when I boot up I get
Code:
**The "try" command failed with error:
/sbin/rc: line26: /dev/null: Read-only file system

Line 1: /dev/null: Read-only file system
....
asks for root pw for maintainance


k I deleted null and recreated it, now when I boot I get an error
when mounting my root fs /dev/hdb3...
says failed to open FS and to run fsch.reiserfs w/ --rebuild-sb
though it looks like its already trying it and it says
*filesystem couldn't be fixed :(

and when I try it and reboot I get the same error

hopefully this thread accepts questions about udev as well as the primer. nice primer. been running udev for a bit now. the udev.rules no longer contains examples of rules for printers, etc. anyone know why these examples were removed? i'm using 024-r1 udev. went to ~x86 per advice from IRC. also, i have one device (memory stick) that locks up the machine hard. sometimes it gets recognized, but frequently it'll lock up the box. iders?
