What setting should I use in BIOS Setup under Boot Configuration or PNP/PCI Configuration Setup for selecting to either use PNP or OS. The default is NO, to let the BIOS configure all devices, or Yes, to let the operating system configure PLug & Play devices. Could someone explain these two choices.
PIII 700Mhz, 512 RAM, 40GHD, Win Me.
Thanks,

What brand and version of BIOS do you have?

I have AWARD and take the defaults. Everything works.

Dan, I have AMI Bios with a new Intel D845WN Motherboard. Maybe I didn't sate my question clearly. When I go into my BIOS, under 'Advanced-Boot Configuration', there are two choices-(1) Either I let the BIOS configure all Plug & Play Device Resources (Select NO), and (2) let the operating system (in my case Win Me) configure Plug & Play Device Resources (select YES).
Any info appreciated,
Bruce

My thoughts, if your going to run a plug and play os, than use it.

Let the os control them and leave the bios off

Thanks Brian. I think that's the best, and most logical thing to do. I just don't understand, with Plug & Play being the most common thing around these days, the default setting is for the BIOS to arrange everything.
Thanks again,
Bruce
