Thanks again Paul. That was exactly the solution I needed.
I remember this thread, or one like it, on the Gentoo-user list, but I
didn't follow the thread. I just remember that the Gentoo tarball was
not created correctly and these devices were left out. Adding them in
solved all the problem. Machine boots, we've updated @world and are
building KDE as I write this.
Thanks very much for your help.
