Use pnpdump to get a dump of the PNP configuration
after booting straight into linux and then after booting
Use diff to see what the differences are.
Then take the bit that's different from the one that
works, uncomment it and save it as /etc/isapnp.conf.
Chances are your distribution's boot scripts will check
for this file and use it to set up ISA PNP devices for
you, so just try booting straight into linux again.
More info in isapnp, isapnp.conf and pnpdump man pages
and the Plug-and-Play-HOWTO.
