 run a mknod command to create /dev/hda as a symlink to ide/foo/bar whatever
it is, somewhere early in your boot scripts (i.e. near the start of the
first one).  With devfs, all the device files you need should be there, but
the have different names.  (BTW, I don't know if mknod will work right on a
devfs filesystem.  It should though.)
