I believe that you have to use udev from 2.6.14 on.
This is not true. I'm happily running 188.8.131.52, on an FC2 box, which
pre-dates udev. And its no problem at all. Everything Just Works
One thing you _cannot_ do is run devfs though, it's udev or
statically managed /dev. devfs was removed in 2.6.13 I think.
