don't you have to mount it?
what does mount report? i see the following:
[kevin at domain nyx ~]$ mount
/dev/hda1 on / type ext2 (rw)
none on /proc type proc (rw)
/dev/hda10 on /home type ext2 (rw)
/dev/hda5 on /u1 type ext2 (rw)
/dev/hda3 on /u2 type ext2 (rw)
/dev/hda8 on /usr type ext2 (rw)
/dev/hda6 on /var type ext2 (rw)
none on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,mode=0622)
maybe a mount /dev/pts would help? with this in /etc/fstab:
none /dev/pts devpts mode=0622 0 0
