pnpdump > /etc/isapnp.conf

Once get the information from pnpdump, it should be at the end of each
device configuration set.

A note, you may have problems with isapnp say that there are fatel
irq, and io errors, even if you know that that address is not being
used.  To fix this, add (ACT N) at the beginning of each device
section.  Let me know if you have problems.

If there is a working /etc/isapnp.conf, it will be used at bootup.
There is a script that runs it.  This is for sure for potato.  I can't
remember if this is true for slink.

Good Luck
