Please forward to Q/A. this is not a bug, but I can't find
how to submit a general Question.

Compareing Linux to windows, we are having a difficult time
in a presale environment showin clinets how to add things
like IDE Zip drives, DAT Tape, Multiport Stallion cards.
It seems that you install only works on the basic config.
where is the procedure on adding other devices, like the
above or just any thing beyond the basic setup. The 6.0
installation does not cover this. we have lost several
opportunities because of this difficulty.

the install should have a section or linuxconf should have
a menu adding other hardware . then list everything like
windows does. or SCO in mkdev.
