No, not yet. It's still proprietary source, but I'm looking forward that I
can release it under GPL until june (or I'll re-hack it, it's not that big
[say 1500 lines], cause libdetect does lot of work).

this will be detected (and kernelmods automatically inserted):
ide, scsi, serial, sound, parport, ethernet

for our linuxrc, its interesting to get usb and pcmcia up (still not that hard).

I'm looking forward to see my laptop booting from my pcmcia cdrom or an
usb-storage device.
