Hardware Activation

Registered by Scott James Remnant (Canonical) on 2005-10-19

Our current boot process has parts that rely on certain pieces of hardware being available, such as networking, bluetooth, sound and printers. We should instead provide a means to activate these when the hardware is detected rather than assuming it exists, and move the startup scripts into activation scripts instead.
