I will post a patch which will suppress the boot message if
/etc/sysconfig/hwconf doesn't exist.

This explicitly changes the behavior to be not interactive.
Please note that you have to remove /etc/sysconfig/hwconf
to change the hehavior. I believe you have to do it by
hand on purpose. The hardware support can be changed by
1. A new hardware.
2. A new kernel which supports the existing hw which was not
supported by the old kernel.
In some cases, I may not want to sit there to interact with
kudzu. My patch provides a way to avoid it. But I have to
do it on purpose by hand.
BTW, anaconda does the same thing by doing "kudzu -a" during
the install. I just want to have a way to do the same.
You can do it by calling it explicitly itself; the run-on-each-boot
configuration is not necessarily meant for this.
