Re: Device detection? [Summary]

So to sorta summarize, this is possibly something we want to do, right? The
approach would be something like this:

0) On a machine with windows installed, maybe look at the registry to see what
   devices we can find
1) On a PCI system, scan for PCI id's and pick up devices. should be relatively
2) Scan for PnP devices
3) io-port scan for legacy devices
4) Scan for SCSI/ATAPI devices
5) Allow users to manually add/drop devices

All the while, we'll need to keep some type of a checkpoint log, maybe not
writing to disk for each device, but do them in blocks.

let's do it! :)
