Ubuntu Dapper as Dom0, Debian Sarge as DomU. Sarge was bootstrapped, 
Trying to ssh ont the system, and after providing password I've got: stdin: is 
not a tty, and no console.
When I check processes from serial console I've got something like this:
root      821  0.0  0.6 10148 1692 ?        Ss   15:59   0:00 -bash
root      822  0.0  0.7 38476 2056 ?        Ss   16:00   0:00 sshd: root@notty

In auth.log:
Sep 10 16:00:16 mailguard1 sshd[822]: Accepted keyboard-interactive/pam for 
root from ::ffff:xx.xx.xx.xx port 54800 ssh2
Sep 10 16:00:16 mailguard1 sshd[822]: error: openpty: No such file or 
Sep 10 16:00:16 mailguard1 sshd[822]: error: session_pty_req: session 0 alloc 

So I assumed there are no ttys created. 
mailguard1:/dev# ls  /dev
MAKEDEV  evtchn  initctl  mem   ram0   ram12  ram2  ram6  random  urandom
console  full    kmem     null  ram1   ram13  ram3  ram7  shm     xconsole
cpu      hda1    kmsg     port  ram10  ram14  ram4  ram8  tty     zero
disk     hda2    log      ptmx  ram11  ram15  ram5  ram9  tty1

Ok, I'm right. But I just can't create devs, after launching MAKEDEV no 
devices are created. Any ideas?
