I missed the addition of the /sys filesystem, and that appears to be
what pnp.txt in the kernel documentation is talking about.  I see many
0x:00 entries in /sys/bus/pnp/devices, but how do you tell what's what? 
I looked at the resource and options file of all the entries, and some
of them I could tell what they were, but not all of them.  I assume if
an entry for a device/card isn't there then the kernel didn't find it? 
And if the kernel didn't find it, there's probably no way to "help" the
kernel find it is there?  I should probably break down and try
isapnptools shouldn't I?

Here's an output from my system boot:
ACPI: Subsystem revision 20040116
ACPI: Interpreter disabled.
Linux Plug and Play Support v0.97 (c) Adam Belay

Does the "pnp: 00:0b" signify that the kernel found a pnp device?  if
so, do I just need to configure this device in /sys?
