You mean RAID/LVM? You don't need that unless you are using RAID or volume management. Almost every desktop user doesn't need that stuff, the "device manager" you are thinking about is nothing like the windows one, it's for managing arrays of drives in servers, not system devices. -- gentoo-amd64@g.o mailing list
