afaik you can turn on and off the hardware scanning from YaST (in System
group, the "runlevel editor" entry and then scroll down in the "simple mode"
and you'll see "hwscan" of the first column. select it and under the table
click "disable". on reboot, it should skip that phase. If it doesn't, then go
with the "expert mode" and on the "set/reset" button (bottom right-ish)
select "disable the service". then "Finish". this should definitely do it :)
Hope this helps,
