boot loader distro & hardware detection questions
1. I remember reading somewhere about a Linux distro which was primariliy used as a boot CD. Not Knoppix or anything like that, just a CD which you boot from which then gave you options to boot into various connected deveices (hard drive OS / usb flash drive / usb HDD etc). Does anyone know anything about this?
2. Is there a utility for Linux which detects hardware in a similar fashion to how 'sisandra' does for windows? It would be useful for me as I want to cut a lot of the not-needed stuff from my kernel.
