I don't think that's going to work. For one thing I don't know what I'm doing 
with mknod, also it insists that you give both major and minor numbers, and 
the only number I have is the major one "81", and if I try it using just the 
major # mknod says it's missing options.

What was responsible for the /dev filesystem on FC2 before udev took over on 
later FC versions?

I'm not giving up on FC2, as it's always worked well, even though no longer 
supported. Someone at LQ suggested a script to load bttv, and I might have to 
go with that, setting it up in KDE's autostart. 

Thanks for the help.

Nigel.
