You can avoid isapnp difficulties all together by installing a 2.4 kernel.
(i.e. install woody, or go to potato+2.4kernel via the Bunk packages.)

The 2.4 series has smarts that can auto-sense IRQ's and addresses and stuff.
It doesnt work with every concievable isa card, but sb16 is one thing that
it is well tested with.
