  • Patent number: 5579529
    Abstract: A method for the configuration of peripheral adapters in computer systems. The method examines a flag in a Configuration Space of the peripheral adapter to determine if user-selectable configuration options are required for the peripheral adapter. If the flag is set, then a configuration file is retrieved and interpreted to determine how the peripheral adapter should be configured and to determine how the configuration options should be presented to the user. Such configurations options may be conditional and based on previous user selections. Once the user's selections have been made, the method updates registers in the peripheral adapter with the selected option values.
