Some advice please

For various reasons I'm going to do a fresh install of Hearty once the next
LTS release is published.  As I didn't do the install on the desktop
originally, I need a little guidance.

I have various periphials that get attached / detached , as you do, and was
trying to figure out whether the best way was to have them all connected
during the installation process so that any necessary drivers / packages are
got then, or do the fresh install with the bear minimum attached, and add
the necessary bits and pieces as required?

By periphials I include such things as printers / USB Drives / sticks, PDA,
etc etc
