Isnt this what discover is for? The other problem with this in regards
to discover (which i believe is part of the sarge base system) is that
the order of module loading is different, so for things like network
cards you get different interfaces depending on whether discover or
hotplug loads the modules. I also get a network driver for my firewire
port loaded even though nothing is plugged in there.
