RE: Making new "/dev" entries

Just "makedev lp3"? This is the part that I am a little
vague on. Isn't there parameters to include with this?
How does it know how which piece of hardware it is 
intended for? Or am I making this harder (in my head) 
than it really is? 

And you said FreeDSB? I'm wanting to do this in Linux.

Thanks in advance

Check out the MAKEDEV command , I use it under FreeBSD, go to the dev
directory and try MAKEDEV lp3. First , read the man pages in case I`m wrong
in the exec method.
