I don't recommend actually doing this (reference earlier discussion
about ISA vs. PCI) but I think you could probably get ISA off the
ground with our boot disks by doing the following steps:
- Add explicit "insmod" lines to config.boot. (See documentation for details.)
- Add the ISA modules required to the list of boot modules.
- Rebuild phase 1 and 2 boot images with beoboot or beosetup.

- Copy module to node.
- bpsh <node> /sbin/insmod /tmp/module
- bpsh <node> ifconfig (or whatever)
