Thanks very much!!
Does Ubuntu(liveCD) have any doc for describing how hotplug do hardware 
detection? i tried to find ubuntu-devel maillist but have no answer.
I think afaik(?) should modify hotplug script, because in knoppix, 
mophix, gnoppix, they also use hotplug, What's the diffierence?

Actually, i think Ubuntu's hardware detection is better than Knoppix.
