$ l /etc/rcS.d | grep udev
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root  14 07.05.05 21:42 S04udev -> ../init.d/udev*

in /etc/rc2.d is no udev

I have greped through /etc/udev and could find "null"
grep -r ull is what i used for it.

anyway here is set to:
cd /dev/
# l | grep ull
crw-rw-rw-  1 root root      1,   7 13.03.06 18:21 full
crw-rw-rw-  1 root root      1,   3 13.03.06 18:21 null
