    I am running Windows 7 through VirtualBox, an emulator running in Slackware Linux 12.2. I set the internet connection to pass through using NAT, and it will not detect the connection as a wired connection, the way Windows XP does. It does not seem to recognize the connection as a wired connection. Any Suggestions or diagnostics someone would have/like?

    EDIT: I solved the problem by downloading AMD's PCnet Wired Ethernet card driver for Windows XP from the AMD site, burning it into a CD image, mounting the CD image, and telling Device Manager to look in the CD drive for the driver. Networking now works fine.
