30    class="devicefile">null</filename> devices. The device nodes will
31    be created on the hard disk so that they are available before
32    <command>udev</command> has been started, and additionally when Linux
33    is started in single user mode (hence the restrictive permissions on
34    <filename class="devicefile">console</filename>). Create these by running
35    the following commands:</para>
