i tend to agree with mr "> >". i absolutely couldnt get a second
screen going in SuSE since it wasnt autodetected/configured, yet in
gentoo it was just a matter of 'emerge nvidia-kernel'. same with sound
- all i had to do was echo ALSA_CARDS=mia >> /etc/make.conf && emerge
alsa-driver && /etc/init.d/alsasound restart, but since the card wasnt
autodetected and i couldnt even find a package containing alsa driver
modules for debian, it required falling back to something even more
primitive and timeconsuming (google for tarball location, grab
tarball, configure, mess with make-kpkg, install crap, reboot, etc)

> The distributions that have automatic hardware

if only it were that simple.. take things like the builtin GUI
utilities being incredibly dumb and overwriting settings you changed
behind the scenes. compared with the etc-update util in gentoo (or the
similar thing in debian) these 'autoconfiguring' distrii often have no
inkling that a user might want to override only certain things

so my vote should be apparent..
