What do the interrupt vector tables look like for for 
the various hardware? Is there documentation for these?

Out of curiosity, one of my (opinions) thoughts, was that 
*NO* drivers should be seriously embedded into the kernel.
Are the IDE, CD-ROM....etc drivers generic modules that can
be dropped from the kernel, by the user, once a better driver comes along,
or will that require a complete recompile of the OS?
