12. Installalling the kernel and system logger
 says to enable the "Device File sysem"  I can't find a reference to DEVFS anywhere in the menuconfig.  If I look at the .config file I find CONFIG_DEVFS_FS is not set, CONFIG_DEVFS_MOUNT is not set immediately after CONFIG_PROC_FS=y.

This is my 2nd run at this.  The first compile would not work; said kernel needs devfs and it wasn't compiled in.

Can someone help here?  Am I missing something?
