>So, what does devfs give you?
devfs uses a somewhat different setup on devices (ok, completely different).

devfsd creates the 'normal' devices in case something breaks. AFAIK, most 
stuff don't need devfsd any longer, and I haven't had problems with it 
(Except that I've had to fiddle a bit with configuration)

I don't use devfsd any more. Waste of memory. And my memory is precious. 
(all 384MB of it :)
