"It was great to see the project blossom again after
some years of diminished interest and getting some developers
together (not me, I am just a humble user) was very productive. One
of the developers I enjoyed talking to, Erwan Velu, out of the blue
revealed he had some unfinished work I was very interested to test.
"Well, that unfinished work is close to be completed and is
already shipping as part of syslinux. It is called HDT or Hardware
Detection Tool. Basicly it is a syslinux (com32) bootloader program
showing you the complete internals of your system before booting
from the boot-prompt. What's more, if you exit HDT you end up back
on that same boot-prompt!"
