JSI Tip 1825. Can't get your 3c905 NIC to install in unattented setup?

Your 3c905 OEM NIC may not be detected during unattended installation.

There is an error in the Oemsetup.inf file that was included with the card.

To fix the problem, first make a backup copy of the Oemsetup.inf. Modify it as follows:
