I'm not sure that this is the right way to do it. I prefer a more
profile-based approach -- I should be able to just select `IBM' then
`Thinkpad 600E' and then go and select my expansion cards. If someone
self-builds a machine, then they could start out with `Generic PCI-based
x86' and go from there; if they built the machine they should know what's
in it.

The Sex Pistols were revolutionaries.  The Bay City Rollers weren't.
