Booting with isapnp

The README.SuSE file in /usr/doc/packages/isapnp says:
"If the file '/etc/isapnp.conf' exists, the program 'isapnp' will be
executed automatically by '/sbin/init.d/pnp' in runlevel 1, 2 and 3."

I have /sbin/{isapnp,pnpdump}, and the docs, and I've hacked
/etc/isapnp.conf so that there are no conflicts.

But I don't seem to have /sbin/init.d/pnp. I've installed the
isapnp package, set the variable START_ISAPNP="yes" in rc.config,
run /sbin/SuSEconfig. Still, the init.d script is not there.

What do I need to do to get this script installed?
Should I just stick an invocation of /sbin/isapnp in boot.local?
I think the isapnp stuff would need to happen before setting
up the ethernet cards, which are my pnp devices. I'm not sure
boot.local happens early enough.

I'm running SuSE6.3.
