The hotplug scripts won't generate coldplug events for them? I think you
are referring a system where the drive for this ISA non-PNP NIC is a
module, but that is not the real issue here.
I'd suspect that if the driver for the NIC was compiled into the kernel,
the hotplug subsystem would generate a coldplug event for it at startup,
just like it would for any other type of network device.
