  At the moment, if your block devices aren't listed in /sys/block, udev seems 
to ignore them and to forbid you from creating them manually, at least 
in /dev.  This made a CD writer inaccessible on a computer I was trying to 
fix recently until I accessed the CD drive via /proc.

  udev has some nice features, but until it works more reliably, I'd like it 
kept as far away from the standard install as possible.
