Chapter 21. Configuring Hardware > Managing Older (Non-PnP) Hardware

Managing Older (Non-PnP) Hardware

Managing non-PnP hardware is more complicated than managing PnP devices. These older devices lack the capability to be dynamically configured by Windows 98, and they may be difficult to detect during setup. In addition, PnP device installations must be able to work around existing older devices already in the system.

Because of the large number of older non-PnP devices in the market, the Windows 98 Plug and Play capability is designed to work with them. Windows 98 includes a large database of hardware devices that provides information on the preferred settings for hundreds of such devices.
