It may have something to do that the mountfs script didn't work properly
and the root file system wasn't mounted in read-write mode.

The other reason could be that /dev/tty1 doesn't exist but you said it
does, so we'll assume the file is allright for now.

Check mountfs, see if you got the message "Remounting root file system in
read-write mode..."
