The challenge with EISA is finding the .CFG files that work with the
EISA Configuration Utility so you can get the mainboard to work with
The floppy-based sets I have come across are a superset of those
needed for a specific board so it is usually worth digging around in
manufacturer "driver"/mainboard diskettes to check if they also
shipped .CFG files for boards other than their own.
The .CFG files (they are text files sometimes with comments) can be a
useful source of information about what the board does and how it is
intended to work (like slot-specific assignment, IRQ conflicts etc).
