According to your lshal and lshw output you've got 1 ``Virtual CDROM'' and 8
``Virtual Floppy'' devices.. For which hal is correctly spawning
hald-addon-storage processes. What kind of devices are these ? If you don't
really need them, maybe you can just turn them off in the bios?
Strange that it causes so much system load to monitor them though..
