Just a guess, did you compile/install a vanilla 2.6.8 kernel as root?
This kernel had a bad Makefile for ppc that trashes /dev/null during
make/make modules_install. So you would have to recreate /dev/null
whenever you recompile this kernel. The Makefile has been fixed in the
latest 2.6.9 prepatches (since 2.6.9-rc3 I believe).
