restoring tty0


When I rebooted my linux box (RH8), a check was forced as I didn't halt the system properly. During the reboot, fsck was forced and apparently to fix the the root partition, /dev/tty0 was deleted.

Right now, I cannot get back into X as XFree86 says it cannot open /dev/tty0. Is there anyway I can restore /dev/tty0?

I think. Does RH8 not use DevFS? if so it might be different.
