/dev/kbd ..."not a device file..."

I tried to run a GUI on hurd K7.
Used the update/ and install/ on the CD1.
When trying the STARTX the machine is freezing at .."cannot open 
such file"
I am not able to create a kbd-devicefile in /dev with ./MAKEDEV kbd; it will 
not accept it as device-file.
I am told by the instruction that such a device should be created during the 
preparation for GUI.
I might be doing a mistake or insuffiency during this process,and wonder which.

(I also noted that this K7 will not accept a linux swap,but that is another 
question and not so important,in as much this just has to be redone.)

I have tried to go through the necessary steps to achieve GUI and I feel I am 
close to make it.

Has anybody any idea here as to the bespoken devicefile,or do anybody recognise 
a common beginners mistake here?
