This looks like a good place for me to ask my question.
I actually have a Sparc workstation, but the question is
related to what was said above.
My dmesg contains:

Sparc Zilog8530 serial driver version
tty00 at 0xffede004 (irq = 44) is a Zilog8530
tty01 at 0xffede000 (irq = 44) is a Zilog8530
tty02 at 0xffedb004 (irq = 44) is a Zilog8530
tty03 at 0xffedb000 (irq = 44) is a Zilog8530
Sun TYPE 5 keyboard detected without keyclick

but I don't have any tty0[0-3] in my /dev directory.
I do have ttyN, where n is 0-63 (no leading zeros on
single digit numbers), and ttyS[0-3].

Why does the kernel report tty0[0-3] when there is no
such thing in the /dev directory, and besides the
serial port connects to a different device ttyS[0-3]?
