If you think you have a machine that will run without drivers for
an ATA disk controller, a Floppy Disk Controller, a Parallel Port
Chipset driver, any serial communications (sio), a video console (vga),
a mouse, and a keyboard, then by all means go ahead and try it.
BUT if I were you I'd do "man ata, man fdc, man ppc," etc. and see
what those things do before I remove them from my kernel.
((In other words, leave it all in!!!)
