Since Basilisk hasn't upgraded to include XP in its arsenal, what settings would be closer... 2000, ME or XT?

More specifically, when loading drivers for ethernet cards, which ones work with XP?

Thanks

The Windows 2000 Ethernet drivers work under XP.

If something says Windows 2000, it also works with XP, because XP is built on the 2000 kernel, and 2000 is built on the NT kernel. So what I am saying is that XP, 2000, and NT are pretty much the same.

A link to Microsoft's Windows XP Professional Comparison Guide might help for starters.

Perhaps it would have been better stated "NT, 2000 and XP use similar NT-based kernels" and left it at that.

The Windows NT 4 Ethernet driver should not be used with Windows 2000/XP by the way. It can work (sporadically) but causes lock-ups and BSODs
