Unhappy what is hald-runner?


I am in the trial and error stage of making an Apache web server to run squid and dansguardian. I'm using slackware as my OS. My question is what is hald-runner, I typed ps ax to see what was running and that hald-runner is one of them. What is it?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HAL_(software)

"HAL makes information about certain classes of hardware accessible in a uniform format. When a new device powers up within the system (an event known as hotplugging), it can broadcast an asynchronous signal on the system message bus of the D-Bus IPC mechanism giving details of the new device and its capabilities."
