Please correct me if i'm wrong but does this mean you can only use one single 
instance of the ndis driver? If this stuff is really working i think we should 
see more instances of the ndis, true?  example a wireless card and a onboard 
ethernet? Maybe more. How can you work around that problem?

It's just a thought, nothing more, i really like this thing because it helps
using strange hardware buildin laptops for example. Really cool stuff.
