 "make" doesn't work
I am trying to use isapnptools on slackware 7.  When I type "make isapnp" as
the instruction say to, I get the following response:
make:  *** No rule to make target 'isapnp'. Stop

What do I need to do get "make" to work?

Have you done a ./configure yet?  If not, then this will create the necessary
makefiles in the directories.

In the directory you are running make there should be a file called
'Makefile' (or makefile). The error message you report seeing is caused
by 'make' not being able to find instructions on how to build the
'target' - in this case isapnp. If you edit the Makefile and search for
the character ':' you should find lines of the form

all: <list of targets>
install: blah blah

These are the so called 'rules' and would be invoked as make all, make
install, make clean (most makefiles will contain these). The first rule
in the make file is what runs when you don't give make a target (ie just
type 'make') it is possible that this will do what you want.

Check that the makefile you are running is the one you expect - ie it is
the one belonging to the isapnp package and if possible get a list of
files in the package to see if there are multiple makefiles. If so then
you can search them until you find an isapnp target.

In article <DE6_3.1094$>,

Did you change to the top-level directory of the source code first?

You _did_ load the kernel source packages, didn't you?
And isa plug-n-play support may be in some non-kernel package you didn't
load from cdrom.
