    And if the reason you are building a new kernel is that the old one is
    mis-identifying some of your hardware? ;)

    Could you maybe describe the problem you are trying to solve a bit more
    clearly than "the hardware-discovery problem for ISA devices"? If you
    are trying to discover the ISA devices, but rely upon them having
    already been discovered, what are you accomplishing?

    Puzzled,
