NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     isa - introduction to ISA bus support

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     # amd64 and i386
     isa0 at mainbus0
     isa0 at pcib?

     # alpha
     isa* at pceb?
     isa* at sio?

     # cats
     isa0 at pcib?

     Attachments are machine-dependent  and  depend  on  the  bus
topology and ISA
     bus  interface of your system.  See intro(4) for your system
for details.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The system includes a machine-independent ISA bus  subsystem
and several
     machine-independent ISA device drivers.

     Your system may support additional ISA devices.  Drivers for
ISA devices
     not listed here are machine-dependent.   Consult  your  system's intro(4)
     for additional information.

     Note  that  interrupt  mappings on the i386 may require that
you configure
     your BIOS to reserve the interrupts  for  these  devices  as
"Legacy ISA".
     If  such configuration is not done, the system may use those
     for pci(4) or isapnp(4) devices instead.

     At least the following devices are supported:
