NAME
     isapnp -- introduction to ISA Plug-and-Play support

SYNOPSIS
     isapnp0 at isa?

     An
     isapnp bus can be configured for each supported ISA bus.

DESCRIPTION
     NetBSD provides machine-independent bus support and drivers for ISA Plug-and-Play (isapnp)
     autoconfiguration of PnP-compatible devices on an ISA bus.

SUPPORTED DEVICES
     NetBSD includes machine-independent ISAPNP drivers, sorted by function and driver name:

   SCSI interfaces
	   aha	      Adaptec AHA-154[02] SCSI interfaces.

	   aic	      Adaptec AHA-1520B SCSI interfaces.

   Disk controllers
	   wdc	      Standard IDE and ATAPI drive controller.

   Serial and parallel interfaces
	   com	      8250/16450/16550-compatible ISA PnP serial cards and internal modems.

   Network interfaces
	   an	      Aironet 4500/4800 and Cisco 340 series 802.11 interfaces.

	   ep	      3Com 3c509B EtherLink III Ethernet interface.

	   le	      PCnet-PnP Ethernet interfaces based on the successor to the AMD LANCE chip.

	   ne	      NE2000-compatible Ethernet interfaces.

	   tr	      TROPIC based token ring interfaces.

   Sound cards
	   ess	      ESS Technology derived PnP sound cards and devices.

	   guspnp     Gravis Ultrasound PnP sound cards.

	   sb	      SoundBlaster, SoundBlaster 16, and SoundBlaster Pro sound cards.

	   wss	      Windows Sound System compatible cards, e.g., most of the cards with Crystal
		      Semiconductor chips.

	   ym	      Yamaha OPL3-SAx sound cards.

   Miscellaneous devices
	   pcic       PCI PCMCIA controllers, including the Cirrus Logic GD6729.

     ISA Plug-and-Play devices also have alternate ISA drivers with static ISA IO address config-
     uration.  These are listed in isa(4).  The isapnp bus ignores devices that have already been
     found and configured as isa(4) devices.  The isapnp bus is only effective on machines which
     lack a PnP BIOS, or  on which the PnP BIOS has been disabled.  The manual pages for each
     individual isapnp driver also list the supported front-ends for other buses.

HISTORY
     The isapnp driver appeared in NetBSD 1.3.
