Mount rootfs via NFS

I read from the documents that to mount root file system with NFS i have to provide the following boot argument

bootargs = "console=ttyS0 ip=<client ip> root=/dev/nfs rw nfsroot=<server ip>:/opt/eldk/ppc_4xx,tcp"

 

My question is, I dont see  device /dev/nfs in the file system and i don't know how to create it. I tried MAKEDEV nfs but doesn't seem to any nfs device. Even the devices.txt in kernel documentation does not provide any details as how to create this device . Can some one tell me how to create this device.

You don't have to create the /dev/nfs.

 

I just checked a system that's running NFS root and it's not there.  Maybe not all devices are required in /dev as I've never thought about it, just used NFS.

 

Thanks.
