You're right -- for ISA video cards.
But I'm talking about PCI video cards, which have to use address ranges
assigned to them by the BIOS.
There's a reason the i386 GENERIC config file does it like this:
vga0 at isa?
vga* at pci? device ? function ?
You get one ISA card, but as many PCI/AGP cards as you have slots for.
