RE: Making new "/dev" entries

Thank you 

I do have my kernel source installed. Others
suggested using a script called MAKEDEV. I was
unable to find it. Wonder where I can get it.
Although "rolling my own" from scratch will, 
no drought, prove to be more educational.

If you want to roll your own device files, the file
/usr/src/linux/Documentation/devices.txt (provided you've got kernel
sources installed) lists out major and minor mode numbers for pretty
much everything under the sun.
