DESCRIPTION

The system includes a machine-independent ISA bus subsystem and several machine-independent ISA device drivers.
Attachments are machine-dependent and depend on the bus topology and ISA bus interface of the system. Drivers able to use DMA attach at isadma; otherwise they attach at isa.
Note that interrupt mappings on the i386 may require that the BIOS be configured to reserve the interrupts for these devices as "Legacy ISA". If such configuration is not done, the system may use those interrupts for pci(4) or isapnp(4) devices instead.
OpenBSD provides support for the following devices. Note that not all architectures support all devices.

SCSI controllers

Disk and tape controllers
