    ran included MAKEDEV script, but seems to have no effect.

    still says "fs devpts not supported by kernel" on startup going through

    /dev devices look the same, i.e.:
    crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 4, 128 Nov 9 10:11 /dev/ptyp0
    crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 4, 129 Nov 9 09:41 /dev/ptyp1
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 5 Oct 18 1997 /dev/ptyp10 ->

    drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 1024 Nov 5 18:16 pts
    crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 5, 2 Nov 5 17:07 ptmx

    pts is empty.

    tried downloading the MAKEDEV .rpm from redhat (could NOT find just a
    MAKEDEV script), it failed telling me i needed the new shadow-utils, so i
    got that and THAT failed because I didn't have glibc, grrrrrr

    calgon, take me away! :)
