Yeh, I've been there :) few months back with 2.4.0pre1 or something...

I've been mounting devfs on /devices to play with and not trash
everything, our mails must have crossed, but I just figured this out
and all is well:

[jon@localhost devfsd]$ sudo devfsd /devices/
[jon@localhost devfsd]$ l /devices/sda1  
lr-xr-xr-x    1 root     root           34 Feb  3 18:09 /devices/sda1
-> scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part1

so my test directory is properly symlinked.
next is:

# lilo -R linux devfs=mount && reboot && pray
