I attach the config file I am using, I don't give any extra options to 
grml-debootstrap. The error message isn't very descriptive, I get the 
message about it creating generic devices in /dev (something like that) 
then I get an error stating the script and that MAKEDEV cannot be found 
(sorry I don't have the exact message in front of me, it was of the form:
/bin/chroot-script: xxx: MAKEDEV: command be found
Where xxx was a number which escapes me).
