I have a feature request for OpenSUSE 11.3. In Yast's Software management,
there should be a "missing drivers/firmware" section where once a user clicks
on there it will scan a PC's hardware that doesn't have a driver/firmware, then
it will display the missing drivers/firmware that users can download.

This will save alot of time for beginners who don't even know what
drivers/firmware they need for their wifi card, printer, etc.

Reproducible: Always
