You know that you need to add also NSS libraries and so on? Anyhow, the=20
Bootdisk Howto will explain every pitfall you could encounter, including th=
one you have.
Obviously, to start an Xterm you need X running and the authorization to do=
it(either start UML as the user running/logged in X or do xhost +localhost).

Yes, the device file of the console must be created, but it's not=20
/dev/ttyS0(that is the serial port), it's /dev/tty0 .../dev/ttyN(with N at=
least 2). However, if you missed device files, you'll get other errors. So,=
again, read well that Howto.
If you are able to create a bootdisk, you're able to create a UML root fs. =
only difference I can think of is that you open only 2 console instead of 6=
and other changes to /etc/inittab you like. Obviously, also, you don't have=
/dev/hd* entries but /dev/ubd* ones.
