    Hi

    I have been learning (read oney's and the 2000 book) I can see and scan the PCI buss BUT I just realized the card I have (scrammnet memory card) isnt PNP. So after much crying and hating myself for not catching that ... its a PCI card w/fiber optic connections to other scrammnet cards on its network ... how do I find out where the card is (which slot) and what its i/o address and interupts are??

    I wasnt finding much on these specifics in legacy reading. Its abudant for the PNP. Any help appreciated

  2. All PCI cards *are* PNP. A driver may be a legacy one.

    Very interesting. When I scan the PCI buss for the card (using vender ID Obtained from some utilities) I never find it. I guess I must be doing it wrong ... any suggestions? I have read the samples in the DDK for Windows 2k. I guess I will have to take a third look at the code.

    Is there a place in the registry or the hive where the O/S scans the data from the PNP manager has a list of cards or anything on the PCI buss?
