i always place some hdaX in the real directory, depending on which
partitions the system depends on (actually my build-script just creates
hda + hda1 - hda6 [nice math, istntit?]).
after playing arround with udev (and not always understanding all the
whats and whys) i decided to always create the nodes required to be able
to start the system.
not really nice, but working!
