The Ximian Setup Tools is a project that you might be interested in.
They are a cross distribution configuration system. You can find more
about them here :

(this an updated page that we have not loaded to the main site)

However we are not yet there to do "Hot-plugablity", we are doing
manual configuration at this moment. We need lots of helping hands
because doing a tool that will work on all mayor distros requires
lots of work. Here is out mailing list if you are interested :

the cvs module is "ximian-setup-tools"
