CONFIG_ISAPNP is enabled in the Debian kernel, so is there a way to tell
if the kernel found any isapnp cards? I've looked all through /proc,
including /proc/bus/pnp, but I haven't been able to see anything. The
old /proc/pci doesn't exist and I can't seem to find it's replacement
(at least not anything that would display what /proc/pci used to).
/proc/bus/pnp is quite confusing and the pnp.txt file for the kernel
isn't any help either (the example doesn't seem to correlate to what I
see in /proc/bus/pnp). Any other ideas other than trying the
