I needed this last week :-)
I think that's an excellent addition to the docs project.

I wasn't aware of the hardware probe via the menu system,
so did it via a terminal!

I also mounted it using /etc/fstab rather than the more useful option

What next? reference it from Fedora-docs, or move it to docbook for
addition, if the author is OK for that?

btw, this also raises the fc1 fc2 issue. the method works with fc1,
so it would be a good testbed for marking up, entity extensions etc.

** action required from project lead** :-)
