    somebody can help me !
    a problem with the virtual network card,
    i have install the CoLinux on two machines one WinXP without SP2
    and the second is WinXP with SP2.
    when i run the CoLinux by the command "colinux-daemon.exe -c default.colinux.xml"
    with no changes on the default.colinux.xml from the installation,
    the Virtual network Card on the WinXP without the SP2 as "plug in" ,
    BUT on the WinXP with SP2 the card is been "unplugged" on all time,
    this is the log on the console:
    D:\coLinux>colinux-daemon.exe -c default.colinux.xml

    i try to install the new adapter driver that recommended
    By Henry :
    "If that not helps, try to install an other version, for sample this:
    Try the manual install with control panal (see readme in zip)
    or the command line install. "

    and the problem not fixed.

    i have try to do step by step the ""
    and it did not solve the problem

      Is the name "TAB" correct?

      Perhaps has your adapter the name "LAN Connection ...", or is named "TAP"?

      If you have only one TAP interface installed, need no name in config.  Use simple this XML:
      <network index="0" type="tap" />

      Or on command line (version 0.6.3 and later):

      thanks Herny, about the quik response.

      the name "TAB" is correct. i added to the original config.xml becouse the adapter not response to the CoLinux(it is unplug at all time the CoLinux start and the adapter still unplug)
      so i added to the config XML file the name TAB at any hope that the adapter will start to work.
