boot loader distro & hardware detection questions


Hi

Two 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.

Thanks
Steve

Don't know about the CD but the thing I use to examine hardware is The Info Center in KDE ( KInfoCenter ). Its very similar to sisandra.
