In win 2003 server, it tried to install a driver, but had no valid MAC
in that case.  In XP it simply said it had no driver for that device.
At least that's what I got when I installed XP in kvm a couple of months
ago (using the 0.10.x based kvm).  Unless newer SP install discs for
XP happen to include a driver, then I have no idea why there would be
a difference.  If you are installing XP, then the 8139 and ne2k should
both be supported, while the e1000 probably isn't (gigabit on desktop
machines probably wasn't very common when XP came out).
