Summary: Utilities for configuring ISA Plug-and-Play (PnP) devices.
The isapnptools package contains utilities for configuring ISA
Plug-and-Play (PnP) cards/boards which are in compliance with the PnP ISA
Specification Version 1.0a.  ISA PnP cards use registers instead of jumpers
for setting the board address and interrupt assignments.  The cards also
contain descriptions of the resources which need to be allocated.  The BIOS
on your system, or isapnptools, uses a protocol described in the
specification to find all of the PnP boards and allocate the resources so
that none of them conflict.

Note that the BIOS doesn't do a very good job of allocating resources.  So
isapnptools is suitable for all systems, whether or not they include a PnP
BIOS. In fact, a PnP BIOS adds some complications.  A PnP BIOS may already
activate some cards so that the drivers can find them.  Then these tools
can unconfigure them or change their settings, causing all sorts of nasty
effects. If you have PnP network cards that already work, you should read
through the documentation files very carefully before you use isapnptools.

Install isapnptools if you need utilities for configuring ISA PnP cards.
