OMG - I should *so* have thought about that.
I was testing FC 2 back in the day on WIn XP, and assigned my second NIC to be used by the VM - all of a sudden a reinstall of FC and the NIC was not detected - it took me a bit of some serious troubleshooting to figure out that it was the NIC.
My apologies for not remembering my own experiences and mentioning them here....
