I see you have knoppix. Boot with it. Find out what your / partition is. I will assume it is /dev/hda2. Open a root console and type these commands:
mount -o rw /dev/hda2 /mnt/hda2
mount -o bind /dev /mnt/hda2/dev
This should do the trick ;)
P.S. I think some steps can be ommitted, but it won't hurt if you do them :)
