creating new devices
I don't seem to have a modem device. I may have accidentally deleted it at some point in time, but it no longer seems to exist. I checked in the /dev directory, and it is not there. I have read a bit on creating new devices, and it seems that the mknod command is the one to use, yet the stuff that I have read tells me that I need to know the major and minor nimbers for this device. Where do I find these numbers?
Also, when I invoke the mknod command, are there any options that I need to use? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
BTW..I am running Mandrake 9.2, if that helps. If any other system info is needed, let me know and I'll provide it.
