This is a question I had for a bit... Can you use the PnP util from
Intel to LOCK resources to a PnP card (in DOS), then reboot and use those
locked resource settings in another non-PnP operating system. From what
I was doing it seemed trhat it was dependednt on the BIOS, because
some BIOSes keep the config locked and some don't (dunno why-- could be a
BIOS setting).


PS: I realize this is not the same discussion as above, just wanted to
add something, tho :).
