Look's like you are trusting on 'linux plug-and-play', autoprobing
and hopefull automagical configuration of hardware.

It does not work, not on Win95, not on Linux, not on PC hardware..
Stupid hardware can not read your thoughts, unfortunately..

If you want _exact_ results, jumper your hardware properly and
then give this particular info on each and every load and
configuration command you use. DO NOT TRUST on any automagigal
autoprobings..

Cheers
