Scyld slave Module additions

    I have built a small Scyld beowulf cluster and I have a node configuration question.  All of my slave nodes are currently booting using PCI NICs.  Unfortunately I have many more ISA cards than I do PCI cards. I would like to replace the PCI cards in the nodes with ISA cards.  

    My questions are:

    Does anybody know how I would replace my PCI cards with ISA cards on the Scyld beoboot disks?  The config.boot only seems to apply to PCI cards. 
    Is there a way to install, configure and bond ISA cards after the node is up on a PCI card? 

    If I can get ISA cards into the nodes I will be attempting to bond 2 ISA cards in each.  Any early suggestions for those of you with Scyld experience in this area?

    Thank you in advance for your help.  I apologize if this has already been covered in depth.
