/usr/sbin/config gives a syntax error when I include 'device pcm' just
by itself.

I had previously tried:

device pcm0 at isa? port ? tty irq 11 drq 1 flags 0x0 

which was accepted happily, although this seemingly had no effect in
the kernel. This was a completely fabricated line that I'd hacked up
from either a Handbook page or from one of the help files I'd read
somewhere. (IRQ 11 is what my system BIOS reports the soundcard being
present at. I'm skeptical about the 'isa?' part (since it's a PCI card),
but don't know the correct syntax, and the rest of the line I didn't
change from where I found it, and I just don't know anything about at
