I've just checked my BIOS but couldn't find a relevant setting. I'll investigate that if MAKEDEV (as per Samuel's suggestion below) is ineffective.

I also tried crosshurd, but it was complaining about a package (dhcp-client, I think it was) that was referred to by another package but not available. What I ended up doing was just mounting my KVM installation with qemu-nbd and copying all the files across onto a real partition. I'll try using MAKEDEV now and see what happens, thanks!
