Not sure why you would suggest that. Enabling PnP in bios is a feature that surrenders resource allocation and hardware detection to Windows.If anything,I would disable PnP if you're running Linux.Heck,I disable PnP in the bios when Im installing Windows.
It has to do with the ESCD or extended system configuration database-as I understand it,Linux checks the ESCD at boot for updated hardware information.If PnP is enabled, the bios has passed a lot of the hardware detection chores to the PnP OS.
Now,it may work differently with a laptop, but I doubt it.
Mandrake for one,recommends in thier installation guide to always turn off PnP .
