It sounds like you do not have the required block special files in /dev.
With current udev, I use devtmpfs for /dev. It looks like having
devtmpfs support compiled into the kernel is enough.
If you don't have that, or if there is something in /etc/fstab competing
against /etc/init.d/udev-mount, that might explain the problem.
