Let me guess... you are using devfs in 2.4, and /dev is empty if devfs
is not mounted.
Sorry, I did nothing but installing Debian from scratch and installing
several kernel-image-2.6.x packages afterwards. I did no fiddling around with
devfs whatever (to be honest I do not even have an idea why I should if
everything would work fine).
The only hint Google was able to reveal was a broken initrd which is not
able to handle SATA - but as I said, I tried to disable SATA for exactly
this reason (perhaps I failed but this does not explain why 2.4.x works).
Please tell me what I should check and report to follow your idea.
