If I recall correctly, pnpdump merely writes all the options to the
config file : you still need to edit the file and uncomment the options
that you want.
For example, if the ISA card indicates that it will support interrupts
3, 5 and 7, you need to select one of them from the file, and so forth
for IO port addressing, etc.
SuSE seems to do lots of automated messing with configs, which may or
may not include rewriting the ISA config once generated, but I never
likes that 'feature' anyway. When I want a config, I'll damn well pick
it myself, and anything that changes it gets nuked.
