ISA(4)                     BSD Programmer's Manual                      ISA(4)

NAME

     isa - introduction to ISA bus support

SYNOPSIS

     # 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

     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 interrupts for
     pci(4) or isapnp(4) devices instead.
