And to throw more spit in the puddle;

Apollo DNxxxx machines had an ISA bus and even used ISA cards as
their main form of I/O with a WD7000 disk controller, 3c505
ethernet card (Yes Dean, I *did* have an alterior motive for 
giving you that 3c505 card to write if_eg), 16550 serial cards,

(Those models of Apollo had 680[23]0's...) 

Of course the I/O mapping is kind of icky:

#define outb(a,val) *((char *)((((a&0x03f8)<<7)|((a&0xfc00)>>6)|(a&7))|0x40000)) = (char)val

but I digress......
