    I meant physical not as in physical-vs-virtual addresses (all ISA
    addresses, memory or IO, are physical in this sense, by the time they
    get to the bus). Rather, I meant that you can't determine which slot
    a given device is plugged into. If you have two NICs in two ISA
    slots, there's no way to distinguish between the slots. In practice,
    you'd have to experiment or remove a card and check the jumpering or
    some such.
