Hi Archaic,

I have jsut completed the hint and everything went like a dream. I have 
a couple of comments.

I wondered if it would be worth puting a referance to config_tmpfs and 
the fact that under menuconfig it is under file systems. Although after 
thinking this I also thought "well that's fairly obvious"

Is there an easy way to delete everything from /dev. I went through 
doing a rm -r a* && rm -r b*, missed c, rm -r d* &&. I figured it would 
be better to delete the lot and then re-create console, but I am not 
sure of how to make devices (I did RTFM but it left me no better off)

I will try symlinking passwd,group etc to somewhere under var and see 
what happenes. Watch this space.
