These are the ones I intend to start with, except for audio which can
wait a bit.  And then ethernet of course, once I get the adapter.  The

I don't have any idea how to do that though, so if someone could give
me a hand it would be appreciated.  :-)

There are some devices such as the modem which is not explored enough,
but the ones you mentioned above can be done with the info I have
