      The Debug Info and Backtrace

      I installed ReactOS from the botbuild: "bootcd-40312-dbg.7z" on real hardware.
      Its a Pentium III 766 MHz with 768 MB Ram. I can look up other hardware info
      if that's neccessary!

      After succesfully installing ReactOS on it and booting it (always in debug mode),
      the "New Hardware found"-Window appeared, and wanted a driver for my NIC.
      I chose to install the driver manually and then chose that it should search for
      the driver on removable media. I had it burned on cd, ReactOS found it there and
      installed it. (It did, however, not find it when i chose "Search for the driver
      in this path: CD-Drive:\xxx\xxx", which was exactly the location of the driver)
      It gave me the message that the driver had been installed and that i need to
      reboot my machine, which i then did. It started up until
      then it hung up. I produced a backtrace and added the information for ndis.sys.

      The NIC is a "3Com Office Connect Fast Ethernet", I downloaded the driver here:
      Used the above one, "Sohown2k.exe".

      If you need any additional info, best would be to mail me under timitry@web.de
      I hope i can help with this!
