This is when it changed:
That was way back in Etch 4.0. So any system newer than that, Lenny,
Squeeze, Wheezy, Sid, will have a daynamic /dev.

That article is from 2006. I think it is safe to assume that you have
a dynamic /dev these days. Meaning that you don't need to run MAKEDEV
anymore. Just load the modules and let that trigger creation of the
associated devices in /dev.
I will also note that the hddtemp project mentioned in that article is
pretty much dead. It came up for discussion elsewhere which is why I
am familiar with it. I don't know if the tool still works or not. If
so then great. If not then I would use the smartctl -A to dump the
hdd temperature sensor data and extract it from there.
