Same error here.
Comment 2 TGS 2004-10-01 03:53:29 EDT
I should add that the system hangs at this point.

Just updated my system to the latest development as of 3 AM EST, and 
cannot
boot. 

Error follows:

Press 'I' to enter interactive startup.

Making extra nodes: cp: cannot stat '/etc/udev/devices/*': No such 
file or
directory
                                                     [FAILED]

Configuring kernel parameters:

then nothing, since it is frozen.
Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2004-10-01 04:22:19 EDT
seems like /etc/sysctl.conf is b0rken or /proc is not mounted...
the "cp" error does not harm... really...
Comment 4 TGS 2004-10-01 08:20:02 EDT
Update: if I remove the rhgb option from the grub kernel options, I 
can boot.
