b) Does anyone know of a Win2000 driver / program / trick that will fake being a network card? I've finally got Virtual PC because I need to run some programs that don't like modern versions of Windows. (VPC lets you run several pretend PCs on your existing one - as far as software is concerned, it's running on a real PC.)
Unfortunately, it doesn't allow the emulated PCs access to USB ports, and that's where my xDSL modem is... so none of the emulated PCs can have internet access. They could access it via a network card, but i) the real PC doesn't have one and ii) if it did, I still need a CPU for the PC that would take over the internet access.
