ok. I just got udev running and installed your trial version. one thing:
a "make install" didn't work for me. I had to do "cd 2.6/drivers" and do
a "make install" there. 

then I created the device nodes as told in the docs:

mkdir --mode=755 /dev/thinkpad
mknod --mode=664 /dev/thinkpad/thinkpad c 10 170

and configure-thinkpad for example seems to run without a problem. the
only bad thing is, that my R40 currently is not supported :( but that's
a total different thing.
