Had a request on another list for a floppy image which would do an audit
of the hardware inside a PC and do some simplistic testing to see what
works and what doesn't ... was thinking that for the audit part at least
the kernel boot messages would be incredibly useful and for testing
something like dd and dhclient and some other small network testing tools
could also be useful ... being able to dump all this information out the
serial port or the network (if working) would also be extremely useful.
not all that hard to do, but have there been similar moves in the past
I could base stuff on?
