       these devices comes in two forms.  A hardware device may	 be  supported
       with  a	character or block ``device driver'', or it may be used within

       There are some devices that have fixed input/output space CSR addresses
       and  interrupt  vector  addresses.  There  are  no  address switches or
       jumpers that need to be set up by the customer or Field Service.
