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

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