Pluscom NGP-RTL8169 Realtec RTL8169 Failed Install fails.
Realtek RTL8168C/8111C PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC Realtec RTL8168C/8111C Failed Rev.40825. It installs but doesn't work using Windows 2000 drivers (see bug 2 below).

Known bugs

1. NdisMRegisterInterrupt gets called with InterruptVector == 0 and InterruptLevel == 0 which causes it to fail.

2. Some INF files have both Windows 2000 and XP sections, with separate drivers for both. When trying to install Win2k driver version, Reactos is being detected as XP, thus XP driver is attempted to be installed, even though its driver file may be missing in Win2k driver directory. As Reactos doesnt fail when copying nonexistant file, successful installation is reported, alas driver file is not copied to system32\driver directory. This will cause "Successful install, please restart" window to appear at every boot.
