Hmm, at least SUSE's hwinfo has libhd to it that does the parsing for you
(don't know if there are other hwinfos around actually).
But also SUSE is going to the HAL way for future products. The problem
with hal for your project is that it requires a running daemon - and most
likely requires a 2.6 kernel.
