debian drive probing

Ok, I've tried to install debian and I've noticed this very annoying kernel habit: after detecting my hard disk and cd-drive (hdc,hdd) it goes on to probe hde,f,g...up to k. And the process is slow. Is there anything I can tell the kernel at boot: prompt to stop it from doing this?

Disable that service (hardware probe, could be called kudzu, check documentation) and run it manually when you install new hardware.
