Why do the nodes under /dev disappear after a reboot? I rebooted the machine after I have completed chapter 6 yesterday. Today, all the nodes ,which where created using mknod command in page 103 of LFS-6.1, are gone.

You seem to have a distribution which is using a device filesystem. I am not familiar with this system, but try to add a init script which creates the nodes for you. I have never used Slackware, and therefore I do not know which type of init is used there. Just browse the man pages; a good page to start is
$ man init
On certain systems, there is a
$ man init.d # At least SUSE has this...

Hope I could help somehow,
