SubjectRe: cerberus errors on 2.4.19 (ide dma related)

I know i have no device nodes.  I removed them all before installing
devfs. the devfs documentation says it doesn't need to have devfs
mounted to work, but this doesn't seem to be true at all. Hence my
confusion. I know i can go download a bootable iso and get that burned
and working but I shouldn't have to do that.
