/dev/null and bootup issues

Hi folks,

I seem to be getting rusty at CRUX installs :)

First of all I found that if you install CRUX 3.1
on a 64bit machine copiny an old 2.7 kernel
config over and doing "make oldconfig"
and forgetting to "Enable 64bit Kernel"
the kernel boots but fails to start /sbin/init :)
(Anyway fixed that issue).

The next issue is around /dev/null on bootup.
The boot falls back into single user mode with
errors around not accessing /dev/null (missing?)

I thought udev took care of all this? I must be missing
something stupdily simple :)
