You can do something like:
(I can never remember the exact command, but man MAKEDEV, less MAKEDEV
should give you
or if you have the kernel sources, /usr/src/linux/Documentation/devices.txt
find ttyS0 in there, and do
mknod /dev/ttyS0 c 4 64
to get what you need.
(devices.txt is great, I nuked 1000 files from debian's /dev that I'm not
about to use...
/dev/vcsa*.. anyone used it?)
