Thanks for the info. Since I've got the base system built and running, I 
actually boot into it to build. I just haven't added any other users to it, 
since I don't plan to keep it around that long.

I've now got it running with the 2.6.16-rc2 kernel, and I tried just adding 
your udev-cross, but it's still got all the old hotplug stuff polluting the 
boot-up process. Think I'll just wipe it and start again. I should be able to 
wipe everything but /cross-tools and start from that point rather than going 
back to the beginning. Now that I know about the /dev/null problem, I can 
work around it until the kernel gets updated again.

Just to be sure I'm thinking right, I'll install the bootscripts, and your 
udev scripts, but leave out the hotplug stuff next time?

Looks like I'll be busy again tomorrow (-; (Sorry Cingular Wireless X-D )
