Thanks! That was it. I checked Documentation/Changes which had a bit more
info than devices.txt on setting up /etc/fstab and mounted /dev/pts. Works

Now I have to figure out why the keys seem to be screwed up in Gnome.
When in the console, all is well, but whenever I type in an X app like
xterm, the keys are all screwed up.
