i'm running hoary on an ibm T42.
i had a 2nd battery and a cdrw drive.
normally i have the 2nd battery installed, but when i need the cdrw
drive, i need to reboot for it to be deteched by the OS.

is this normal behavior for hoary, or should it work? i know back in
the day when i was running Windows i was able to hot swap devices in
the multibay.

any sugestions on how to fix this?
