[vbox-dev] SVN trunk: Vista has no ethernet driver?

Hi list,

I installed Windows Vista in VirtualBox svn/trunk, up to date as
of today, Aug 15.  Everything seems perfect except that Vista's
device manager says that the ethernet adapter is unknown.

Judging by the PCI vendor and subsystem numbers, the emulated NIC
is the same 79C973 AMD chip that works perfectly in my XP vbox

Any idea why Vista doesn't like this NIC?  Any ideas how to debug

Thanks for any clues!
