Correction. Forgot I did have a problem with udev. It did not 
automatically copy the udevstart binary. I did a locate on it and it was 
nowhere on my system except in my recently built udev, I 
manually copied this into /sbin and then typed /sbin/udevstart. I 
checked my /dev folder and it looked like all my devices where there 
correctly. Perhaps that is the problem with the newer udevs? If the 
bootscripts expect the /sbin/udevstart to be there, then that could 
cause a problem. :)
