Unknown devices on DL380 G5 /w XP XPRO installed

I installed windows xp pro on a new DL380 G5 machine, but when I look in the device manager, I still have 3 entries in the "other devices" section.

I installed xp by creating a f6 diskette with the windows 2000 server driver for the SAS controller. Then, I found drivers for the video and 2 built in ethernet ports. I also found drivers for the quad ethernet pci card that we purchased from hp.

Now, everything looks good except for the 3 entries that have no driver. The entries are:

Base System Device (hardware address=pci bus 1, device 4, function 6)
PCI Device (harware address=pci bus 1, device 4, function6)
Unknown Device (hardware address=PCI standard isa bridge)

I don't know what these devices are. If I knew what they were, I could try to find drivers for 'em. If anyone has any suggestions, I'd really appreciate some help.

thanks,

Please export the Windows registry as a red file and attach it here. I should be able to give you the description of the Devices.. then you can probably search for the drivers
