Pre-linux Windows program - was Re: bill gates Linux

Reading the thread on installation from Windows - one thing which might help
new Linux users would be a program which they ran from Windows before they
started, which would record all the things Windows knows about their system
which will be required by a Linux installation.

This could include information on the hardware, such as graphics cards, and
some things related to the user, such as language settings and time zones.

These could be written to a floppy and used to supply the information which
Debian Installer will need (a bit like a RedHat Kickstart floppy)
