Hi Marco and all others!

I already took a look at earlier versions, the current one seems to
work pretty well already. Good job, Marco!

The first broken thing I noticed is that no nvidia nodes (for the
proprietary driver) are created. Devfs (and probably also MAKEDEV)

This is not really your fault since the current nvidia module does not
create entries in /sys. So this must be done manually. Of course I
could do that myself, but since it may affect quite a lot of people,
would it be possible to check for a loaded module 'nvidia' and create
above devices in the udev package? The only problem with this is that
/etc/modules is evaluated not until S20module-init-tools (thus, later
than your S01udev); so where would be an appropriate place?

Another problem is that plugging in my USB memory stick does not cause
the creation of a device node in /udev (I changed the path to /udev to
allow comparing against devfs in /dev), but an appropriate
/dev/disc1/... is created in /dev (with devfs). I have the hotplug
package installed and my kernel is hotplug enabled. Do I something
wrong here?

Thanks for your work and for suggestions!
