3. 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.

NIC Status Comments
3COM 3C905B-TX-NM Works Tested with rev.40495. You need to expand EL90XBC5.SY_ and copy it to %windir%\system32\drivers. See bug 2634.
ADMtek AN983B Works Tested with rev.40588. It installs and works on real hardware, using Windows 2000 drivers.
AMD PCNet cards Works Works using our pcnet driver
Compex ReadyLINK RL2000-PCI Works Works, use Winbond W89C940 drivers, as Compex own have too old inf file.
HP J2585B 10/100VG Works Tested with rev.40487. Driver installs and works on real hardware.

Pluscom NGP-RTL8169 Failed Install fails.
Realtek 8139 Failed Crashes when downloading files (see bug 1 below)
VIA VT823x Failed Crashes when downloading files (suspected bug 1 below)

Known bugs

1. We encounter invalid header sizes sometimes. Many packets sent before are sent with correct header sizes and then suddenly, we get invalid header sizes which causes a crash. This bug affects Realtek 8139 and Intel PRO/1000 along with others.

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

3. 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.
