I don't know. I thought it did but I haven't really tested it under anything 
but XP/2003.

After install but before reboot (eg when the rtl8139 driver is active and the 
xennet driver is 'cable disconnected'), can you run copyconfig manually?

In the installer, I wait until all devices are installed before running 
copyconfig, but maybe that's not working, or maybe the copyconfig isn't

It's a bit tricky because the drivers aren't signed.
