Description (last modified by Jiri Svoboda)

In VirtualBox, when you create a new VM with OS set to Other - Other/Unknown (64-bit), the default network adapter being emulate is PCnet-FAST III (PCI ID 1022:2000).

Supporting this adapter in HelenOS would simplify getting networking running in VirtualBox and increase the chance that a random person will get it to work. (Not to mention the possibility to use the actual HW).
