Hi All,
I am not sure that this is a right forum to ask such question but 
someone suggested me so I am asking my problem here.

Actually I am trying to build a customary Linux distribution with 2.6.20 
Kernel, I am using the Busybox 1.7.0 in my root file system. So far 
everything is fine I am able to boot the Kernel getting the shell 
prompt. But I am not able to identify the connected hardware devices to 
my system like Ethernet card etc. So my question is, is there any way to 
figure out the common devices and load it driver by itself at the bootup 

Someone suggested me to use the diethotplog but I don't know how to use 
that. I have downloaded the diethotplug 0.4 and compiled that 
successfully for my Kernel but how can I run the hotplug binary. Does 
diethotplug reads some configuration file?

I am not seeking the help on diethotplug, I am looking for a solution to 
my primary problem, so to make it work I can use anything.
