Well, it may be more than that.  We may need to have a different
version of the kernel in non-free that actually will work on all of
the hardware which Red Hat, SuSE, and every other Distribution.

And we may need to have our own installer that also supports these
hardware and includes non-free in /etc/apt/sources.list as well, since
we might want to be able documentation to our programs (and possibly
fonts) in our distribution.
