Where is Device File System in menuconfig?

Hi. I'm trying to install Gentoo Linux, and in the directions it says, "Under the 'File Systems' section [of menuconfig], be sure to enable the 'Device File System'." I've looked in the File Systems section and every other section of menuconfig and config, and I can't find anything called Device File System or devfs. Can someone please tell me specifically where it is? Or is it actually called something else? Thanks in advance for any help.

devfs is in the File System support section in between procfs & devpts. Just a little down from the NTFS option...
