Configuring Plug and Play devices
To configure ISA adapters, including sound adapters, SCSI
host adapters, multiport serial boards, and others that conform to the
Plug and Play ISA Specification Version 1.0A, use the SCOadmin
PnP Configuration Manager:
When you configure a adapter with the PnP Configuration Manager,
you set the adapter's resources to match values compatible with
existing UNIX® ISA drivers.
immediately after you install the system, if you have any devices to
immediately after you install an ISA PnP adapter

In most cases, you should configure audio and network devices with
their respective configuration managers; this ensures that the
drivers and hardware are set to the same values. However,
there are situations where you must use the PnP
Configuration Manager for these devices:
If there are other devices on the audio adapter (for example,
IDE or SCSI ports), they are not recognized
by the Audio Configuration Manager and must be
configured with the PnP Configuration Manager.
ISA Plug and Play network adapters are not recognized by
the Network Configuration Manager. You can enable these
devices using the PnP Configuration Manager, then
configure them like regular ISA devices using the
Network Configuration Manager.
If the Audio Configuration Manager does not recognize
a new Plug and Play audio device that is compatible with an
older model, you can enable the device with the PnP
Configuration Manager. Then configure its audio driver
by selecting the compatible device listed in the Audio
Configuration Manager, using the same values you used with
the PnP manager.
Make sure that the same values are used when configuring devices
and drivers in separate steps as described here; failure to do
so will cause conflicts in the Resource Manager.
Configuration consists of:
physically adding the adapter
selecting an adapter and device to configure
resolving configuration conflicts
You can also use the PnP Configuration Manager to
disable a device on a specified adapter.
PnP drivers are dynamically loadable modules that enable devices
for use immediately after configuration is complete. However, in
a few special circumstances, it may be desirable to
defer hardware configuration
before using the devices.
