Description

User-Guide is lacking the mapping between 'nictype' and networking hardware description.

Following nictypes are available:

Am79C970A|Am79C973|82540EM|82543GC|82545EM|virtio

Following networking hardware is described

AMD PCNet PCI II;
AMD PCNet FAST III (the default);
Intel PRO/1000 MT Desktop;
Intel PRO/1000 T Server;
Intel PRO/1000 MT Server;
Paravirtualized network adapter (virtio-net).

However the mapping between both information is not obvious.

Yes, I agree.

It would be nice to update User's Manual section 6.1.

AMD PCNet PCI II;

AMD PCNet FAST III (the default);

Intel PRO/1000 MT Desktop;

Intel PRO/1000 T Server;

Intel PRO/1000 MT Server;

Paravirtualized network adapter (virtio-net).

...To add the proper models in parenthesis.
