Problem uploading video


I followed the directions to the letter, the power of cut and pasting,
but the problem remained.  One odd observation: when I logged back
in, the device raw1394 was gone.  I would have thought thess commands
run as root:

> mknod -m 666 /dev/raw1394 c 171 0
> chmod 666 /dev/raw1394
> ls -l /dev/raw1394
crw-rw-rw-    1 root     root     171,   0 Mar 24 06:54 /dev/raw1394

would make a "permanent" device.  I just rebooted again, and it is
definitely not there:

> ls -l /dev/raw1394
ls: /dev/raw1394: No such file or directory

Do I need to write a script to create the device every time?
