I would need to see your .config to see what you are doing wrong, but it
works for me over here. CONFIG_ISA seems to be enabled by default on
Fedora in the git tree so you shouldn't have to do anything there.
CONFIG_ISA is entirely hidden on x86_64 these days.
Excerpt from arch/x86/Kconfig:
# x86_64 have no ISA slots, but do have ISA-style DMA.
bool "ISA support"
Find out whether you have ISA slots on your motherboard. ISA is the
name of a bus system, i.e. the way the CPU talks to the other stuff
inside your box. Other bus systems are PCI, EISA, MicroChannel
(MCA) or VESA. ISA is an older system, now being displaced by PCI;
newer boards don't support it. If you have ISA, say Y, otherwise N.
