maxed hardware capabilities
if I try to add more hardware on my system, I get lots of problems on boot, often network doesn't work, and usually sound fails. (device not found) yesterday I tried adding a second cdrw, but on boot the system never completed detecting IDE-devices, so I disconnected it again. (I guess my psu was maxed out) upon reboot, network, sound and mouse failed to work.
after some messing with modules and a few more reboots I usually get the system healthy again.
anyone have any idea what the problem may be? do I have too much hardware to be able to add more?
