     isapnp - introduction to ISA Plug-and-Play support

     isapnp0 at isa?

     An isapnp bus can be configured for each supported ISA bus.

     OpenBSD provides machine-independent bus support and drivers for ISA
     Plug-and-Play (isapnp) autoconfiguration of PnP-compatible devices on an
     ISA bus.

     OpenBSD includes machine-independent ISAPNP drivers, sorted by function
     and driver name:

   Disk controllers
	aha(4)	      Adaptec 154x SCSI interface
	aic(4)	      Adaptec AIC-6260 and AIC-6360 SCSI interface
	wdc(4)	      WD100x compatible hard disk controller driver

   Serial and parallel interfaces
	com(4)	      serial communications interface

   Network interfaces
	an(4)	      Aironet 4500/4800 IEEE 802.11FH/b wireless interfaces
	ef(4)	      3Com Fast EtherLink ISA (3c515) 10/100 Ethernet device
	ep(4)	      3Com EtherLink III and Fast EtherLink III 10/100
		      Ethernet device
	le(4)	      AMD LANCE Ethernet device
	ne(4)	      NE2000 and compatible 10/100 Ethernet device
	we(4)	      Western Digital/SMC WD80x3, SMC Elite Ultra, and SMC
		      EtherEZ Ethernet device

	ess(4)	      ESS Technology AudioDrive family audio device
	gus(4)	      Gravis UltraSound/UltraSound MAX audio device
	mpu(4)	      Roland/Yamaha MPU401 MIDI UART device
	sb(4)	      SoundBlaster family audio device
	wss(4)	      Windows Sound System audio device
	ym(4)	      Yamaha OPL3-SAx audio device

   Miscellaneous devices
	joy(4)	      games adapter
	pcic(4)	      introduction to PCMCIA (PC Card) support
	rt(4)	      AIMS Lab Radiotrack FM radio device

     intro(4), isa(4)

     The isapnp driver appeared in NetBSD 1.3.

     From time to time an isapnp device will be found which the kernel does
     not recognize.  The kernel matches isapnp devices to device drivers based
     on identifiers which each device provides.	 For example, this device:

     joy0 at isapnp0 <Creative SB16 PnP, CTL7001, PNPB02F, Game> port 0x200/8

     This joystick calls itself by the two names ``CTL7001'' and ``PNPB02F''.
     The latter is a standard name (which the kernel automatically
     recognizes), but ``CTL7001'' is a vendor-specific name which needs to be
     added to a table.	Unfortunately, some devices advertise only their
     vendor-specific name; for instance:

     isapnp0: <PnP Sound Chip, @P@1001, , > port 0x200/8 not configured

     Testing will show that this device is actually a joystick.	 To resolve
     the issue, the actual name ``@P@1001'' has to be entered into the
     database found in /sys/dev/isa/pnpdevs and a new kernel must be built.
     Then the device will probe like this:

     joy0 at isapnp0 <PnP Sound Chip, @P@1001, , > port 0x200/8
