When setting up a diskless VAX you have to manually run MAKEDEV all.  However, even after so doing, sysinst is unable to call openpty for its sub-commands unless the user has run MAKEDEV pty0.
Follow, then try to set the root password (or any other task that calls openpty()) from sysinst.
# cd /dev ; /bin/sh MAKEDEV pty0
