This sounds like a devfs problem. Unfortunatly, I'm not familiar with
devfs, so I cannot really help you. But if I understand correctly, the
devfs creates devices on the fly, though they may be in a different
place than you expect. /dev/hdb might now be /dev/disk/ide/b or
something... I really wish I knew.
Also, there is a devfs daemon, which is configured from a similarly
named file in the /etc directory. There might be some enlightenment in
Otherwise, I'm sorry I cannot help you more. :(
