I just finished a five day installation on my laptop and accidently deleted my /dev directory. I downloaded a stage-2 tarball and extracted the /dev fromm there. Is there anything else I need to do? Is this even going to sufffice?

Thanks,
ajnabi

Yes. If you're using udev it will recreate device nodes anyways, but coping them will work also, with or without udev. (You could have a permission problem if not copied correctly preserving permissions and not using a device manager)
