NetBSD includes a machine-independent EISA bus subsystem and several machine-independent EISA device drivers. Your system may support additional EISA devices. Drivers for EISA devices not listed here are machine-dependent. Consult your system's intro(4) for additional information. SUPPORTED DEVICES
NetBSD includes machine-independent EISA drivers, sorted by device type and driver name: Disk and tape controllers cac Compaq array controllers. mlx Mylex DAC960 and DEC SWXCR RAID controllers. SCSI interfaces ahb Adaptec 174x SCSI interfaces. ahc Adaptec AIC 7770, 274x, and 284x SCSI interfaces. bha BusLogic BT-74x SCSI interfaces. dpt DPT SmartCache/SmartRAID III and IV SCSI interfaces. uha Ultrastor 24f SCSI interfaces. Network interfaces ep 3Com 3c579 and 3c592 10Mbit Ethernet, and 3c597 10/100Mbit Ethernet interfaces. fea Digital DEFEA FDDI interfaces. le Digital DE422 Ethernet interfaces. tlp Digital DE425 Ethernet interfaces. Note that most or all EISA devices also have PCI or ISA equivalents. These are listed in pci(4), isa(4), or isapnp(4), respectively. The manual pages for each individual driver also lists the supported bus variants. SEE ALSO
