Interesting thread but it doesn't answer the posters real question which
is automagical detection of hardware.
My technique for such events is to boot a Knoppix cd and bootstrap
Debian proper in a chroot environment. You can then copy the knoppix
/etc files to the chroot, trimming any cruft out of the knoppix /etc.
Hell with morphix you can LVM a scsi array before dumping the files to
disk preconfigured to what ever system or application package I want.
See debian-non-profit for the joys of Debian/Morphix, beats the pants
Though to be honest I use <anti-christ>Gentoo</anti-christ> live CD
because of its EVMS package to carve up scsi arrays before installs.
There is a hell - to be alone. And a heaven - to be able to be it.
