    CC4 Build trick for outdated network cards

    Hi Everyone,

    The title is slightly misleading more of a tip than a trick, but anyway:

    We've been having problems getting some laptops to build on CC4 because they are "too old" and therefore have no Vista drivers available which are needed to kick off a CC4 build.

    We got around this by using a Belkin F5D5050 (USB to RJ-45 connector) there is a driver available on their website that works on win2k, XP and vista.

    We then:

    1. Generated a build disk with the above imported driver and burnt to CD.

    2. Plugged the device into the usb port.

    3. Plugged the RJ-45 cable into the device.

    4. Booted from the CD and hey presto we have CC4.

    Most of you probably know this already but thought it was worth a post.
