I have now found out that also support for the on-board sound is
missing. Interesting enough both the ethernet card and the on-board
sound are detected by isapnp:
[15276.911826] isapnp: Scanning for PnP cards...
[15277.075086] isapnp: Card 'On Board Sound CS4237B'
[15277.075106] isapnp: Card '3Com 3C509B EtherLink III'
[15277.075121] isapnp: 2 Plug & Play cards detected total
But none are available at application level, Mayby this has todo with
[15277.217081] EISA: Probing bus 0 at eisa.0
[15277.217179] Cannot allocate resource for EISA slot 8
[15277.217194] EISA: Detected 0 cards.

Crystal drivers but I am not sure. I found them under PCI however bit
that might not matter and loading the NIC driver with insmod did not
An ISA bridge bug maybe?
