Some of the updated kernel RPMS (specifically 2.4.9-21 and 2.4.9-31) have not
been compiled with the option which enables /proc/bus/pnp, and therefore neither
lspnp nor setpnp will work until the user builds a custom kernel.

If enabling PNP detection and device configuration would break some machines,
would it be possible to have a separate PNP-enabled kernel package?
