I have installed the system using the KDE4-LiveCD of beta1.
The initrd has not been generated, there's only a orphaned symlink to
I've booted up the LiveCD again and I'm trying to generate the initrd
manually, but I forgot what needs to be done to create the device files
in the chroot environment. I knew that before, but I forgot and can't
think of a way to formulate the Google search. Thanks.

Boot Live-CD, then:
linux:~ # mkdir /tmp/local
linux:~ # mount /dev/sda4 /tmp/local
linux:~ # chroot /tmp/local
linux:/> mkinitrd

Initrd image: /boot/initrd-2.6.25-rc9-17-default
