Mmh, like I said, my laptop is a Dell.  Can it be a Vaio at the same
time?  I don't see this name in any of the specifications.  However,
if I try 'grep -i vaio *' in /var/log, I see in all ksyms.* that

    c03b5dc4 is_sony_vaio_laptop_R7462d5e4

whatever it means.  As for the CD-ROM drive, I have no idea how to
find that piece of information. All I can say is what is in
/var/log/messages.*:

    SONY CD-RW CRX700E, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
