I think you can fix it by reinstalling the dev rpm.

First you need to figure out which dev package you have with the command:

rpm -q dev

dev-3.3.2-5.i386.rpm is the version from the original RH9 install disks (download).

It looks like there are no official updates by redhat posted, so you probably have version dev-3.3.2-5.i386.rpm ... if you do, download it from the link above.

No go into a terminal window (and use the command su - root if you are not logged in as the root user), then change directories where you saved the file dev-3.3.2-5.i386.rpm and issue the command:

rpm -Uvh dev-3.3.2-5.i386.rpm

If you get this result:
CODE
rpm -Uvh dev-3.3.2-5.i386.rpm

Preparing...                ########################################### [100%]
       package dev-3.3.2-5 is already installed


then use this command:

rpm -Uvh --force dev-3.3.2-5.i386.rpm

/dev/fd0 should get recreated....
