You may have other reasons to use the latest kernel, but the package
isapnptools provides easy to configure pnp support and is easy to configure.
Just install the package and make "pnpdump >/etc/isapnp.conf" as root. Then
you can edit the file according to the documentation. It should work with
every kernel, while I heard of broken pnp support in new kernels...

You should look in the "hamm" distribution. This is the codename for the
unstable developement version of debian.

Forget project/experimental, this is not what you want.
