I've been avoiding HAL like the plague as well. It frobs my ath wireless 
card when it tries to probe it. Disabling it works, but KDE runs like 
garbage with hal running, and I get zombie processes of 
"hal-storage-cleanup--all-mountpoints" when I try to shut it down... In 
short, I avoid it wherever possible!
