Wow, I have an SMC Ultra, and I never knew about this program must have a
play. I have a similar program to get my sound card working. It is a PCI
OPTi 931 and it has to have values pushed into its registers to convice it to 
work. The interface is a bit basic though, with some work and a man page it 
could probably end go in isapnptools (if that is the right place).
