If it's trying to grab 0xd0000 then it's probably not PnP.  Another
thing to be concerned about is the ROM area.  The address for that is
also set by dip switch and has an 8K footprint.

It can be altered, but you have to be careful about address
boundaries, i.e. 8K shared ram must fall on an 8k boundary, 16k on a
16k boundary, etc.
