I did load udev earlier, but I never used it (did not have time to
study all the documentation and experiment with the setup).  So I
removed it again.

Thanks for your reply.  After rebooting (a failed effort to get grub
to work on this setup) I could see the /dev/fd0 created by MAKEDEV.  I
am not sure why I could not find it.  Maybe it was related to a
"floppy" module not loaded.
