(standard PC CDROm Drives use 2048 Bytes), plextors and pioneers
can be jumpered.

1. creating tty's, mknod, stuck after boot with wrong tty - help

hi linuxers,

it was a silly thing to do (as somebody already said to me) , but somehow
I deleted my tty1 and console...
Because I was/am quite unexperienced with UNIX I tried several things
and found out about the mknod command.
I did the mknod c 4 1 for the console and c 2 0 for the tty1.
it was working , but X had problems coming up (though I linked console)
then I tried to mknod tty1 like console (c 4 1 ) and I suppose it was
working fine, but I was too dumb to realise it !!
Peeping to MAKEDEV suggested to do mknod tty1 c 193 1 ..
(at least I read it this way...)
but exactly this closed my system tighly for any attempt...
MY QUESTION:

Even booting is not of any help (tty1 is created wrong and console is linked)
Is there any chance to modify this or ... do .. I .. have.. to.. reinstall ??

thanks
tom

being root is great (1 week ago) >> being root is hard.. (today) ;-)
