Subjectthe argument about /dev/random
ok, how about this:
if the machine is configured with support for network devices built
into the kernel, then /dev/random is automatically supported

if the machine is configured with nbet device support as a module,
then /dev/random is configured as a module. kerneld should autload
the random module with the net device

if the machine is configured without support for net devices,
/dev/random would be a y/n/m option with default as ?

Just my $0.02
