I was unable to reply directly to alan's e-mail address so i'll have to
post the reply.
Use pnpdump to extract all the info from pnp cards located in your
computer, for example:
the output from pnpdump is in the proper format to be used a the config
file for isapnp but you will have to find the proper lines pertaining to
your card in the file and uncomment them, once you are happy with the
settings, use that file as your config file for isapnp, hope this helps.
