network driver issues with #ie8 testing #windowsxp machine in #virtualbox

I compile both the firebird 2.5 and the php5.3.x snapshots for windows , no i don't use it at all but i needed to make the driver for firebird on windows machines for lazy people who don't know how to use virtualbox or install ubuntu on a separate partition

I couldn't find the amd driver on amd.com site , i really tried so instead i had to install
and choose the intel driver pro 1000 mt for my virtual box setup


Download the driver for intel board and windows xp in my case prowin32.exe

create the iso

genisoimage -o intel.iso ../../Desktop/PROWin32.exe
I: -input-charset not specified, using utf-8 (detected in locale settings)

then mount it inside the virtualbox and then run the setup from there
after that the nework is up and i can continue to download the sdk from windows and from qt
