/dev in B20.1

I just downloaded and installed the user tools version 20.1.  What a
wonderful difference.  sshd runs better than ever before (faster more
stable)!  Now I have a question about the /dev folder.  The user tools
don't create it, yet there are quite a few messages about things in the
/dev folder.  How do I go about creating these special files?  The main
reason for this is to get syslogd working.  

I have appended a cygcheck of my system.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
