I had no luck...at least not until I told the BIOS to configure it. Then
my problems pretty much stopped. It seems a trifle disheartening,
though, that there doesn't seem to be any simple ways to config up
PnP/PCI devices....not without many many hours of hacking. Some sort of
device configuration db would be nice. We could then write a simple
interface to config devices to specific settings or to let them get
autoconfigged.
..Hmm. Maybe I'm talking through my hat here. Obviously the place for
device configuration is the driver...and therefore, equally obviously (I
hope) there should be a PnP/PCI config layer underneath that they can
use and talk to.

Is there? Am I missing the point?
