How to make /dev nodes?

Hi all,

Me stupid, as usual.

Kernel 2.4.25, devfs, devfsd. Cardreader attached to usb port. Module
loaded by startscript. No entry in /dev/usb/, needed entries
/dev/usb/cm0-cm7, major 180, minor 224 up to 230.

After reading a lot of manuals, i can create the nodes manually by
mknod -c ...

But i think it should be possible to create the nodes during the boot
process or with devfsd. But i can't find anything understandable. Any

Kind regards,
