/dev and /proc


OK, what about this. Is the /dev and /proc file generated at boot time, or are they always there and they get filled in.

For example, if I were to boot into Windoze and read my file system, would they still be visible?

the /dev files are always there

the /proc folder is there, but it would be empty unless the proc filesystem was mounted on it.
