Hi guys. You may or may not know that there is a commercial linux distro
based on debian underway. We will be releasing most of the code under
the GPL. Here's some preliminary code that detects pci devices, takes
their class and  tries to do something with that information. For
example loading the right ethernet module, finding the appropriate
xserver and so on.

Take a look:
In particular shs/detectors/pci/shs_detect_pci

It builds on my slink machine, YMMV. :>
