Okay... sounds like you haven't got the /dev stuff done properly.

Try running MAKEDEV in dev (or i think it is), or try searching for
MAKEDEV and/or similar programs. They create the special files/directories
within /dev. Things could be different if you are running that new dev
filesystem thing (which i do not have experience with)... that is suppose
to only create the filename/directories of actual hardware that exists. So
if you use that do not take my advice, but otherwise look for MAKEDEV and
it's friends and run that.
