Well, they are same to the software, but not at the hardware. If I
have a development board that has PC104 (but not isa), I'd like to see
prompts for PC104 extensions, not for isa. If PC105 comes out, still
ISA compatible, I will want to see prompts for PC104 boards or PC105
boards, but not neccessarily both...
