You could... however, if you're using a recent distro (FC4 or later), you
can just use udev to load all the appropriate modules for network, storage,
sound, etc. That leaves X. In FC6, you'll be able to specify a minimal
X config file - you only need the X driver. So, the only thing you'd need
kudzu for is the X driver.
