We should copy redhat's install...  Say I install a soundcard in my
computer, insmod the appropriate module and give it the location of my
soundcard.  Say I install an ATAPI cd-rom drive, I just insmod the
appropriate driver.  They're all compiled already, but as modules and you
just load the modules you need.  Say I get parallel port zip drive, all I
gotta do is insmod ppa.o.  TTYL!
