    28  * Unfortunately, with Vista, Microsoft dropped support for the virtual AMD PCnet card that we are providing to virtual machines. As a result, after installation, Vista guests initially have '''no networking.''' To fix that, install [http://www.amd.com/us-en/ConnectivitySolutions/ProductInformation/0,,50_2330_6629_2452^2454^2486,00.html the official NDIS5 AMD driver] in the guest. -- Next, the main problem will be how to get your Vista to access that driver file without networking. :-) One possible solution is to create an ISO CD-ROM that contains it and then mount that ISO in the guest. On Linux, this can be easily done with `mkisofs` `-o name-of-target-iso` `-R` `-J /path/to/folder/with/amd/driver/file`. Alternatively, put the driver file on a USB stick and enable a corresponding USB filter for the VM.
