Ah, I didn't notice the slash, I thought you were doing some shorthand
[with the square brackets] for different numbers after the letters fd.
If you list the contents, they're links to /dev/pts (pseudo-ttys).  You
can google those terms, if you really want to know more about it.

Same here.  Possibly, I'd get more automatically created if I had more
floppies in this box.

I do, on FC5.  But don't on FC4.  Have you tried playing with MAKEDEV?
I don't have any floppies like that to play with, so it'd be pointless
me trying to make that device.
