udev does not create scsi device node


I'm trying to use my USB floppy drive on my Dell latitude D800 running Slackware 10.0 and and a 2.6.9 kernel. I use udev and hotplug but when I plug in the USB floppy drive no /dev/sda or any variant is created. I my messages I get:

Initializing USB Mass Storage driver...
scsi0 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
Vendor: SONY Model: USB-FDU Rev: 5.01
Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 02
USB Mass Storage device found at 2
usbcore: registered new driver usb-storage
USB Mass Storage support registered.

but that's all, no creation of a device node. While experimenting I explicitly made a rule in /etc/udev/rules.d/udev.rules stating:

BUS="scsi", SYSFS{vendor}="SONY", SYSFS{model}="USB-FDU", NAME="floppy%n"

but also /dev/floppy0 (or any variant) is not created.

does anybody know what's wrong?
