Though currently neither ndisulator nor ndiswrapper can run i386 drivers on
amd64.  From what I've read in the CVS commit logs, there has been some
amd64-specific work going on in ndisulator but AFAIK that would only work
with 64-bit drivers, which most sources of such hardware don't release.

If only specs would be released for such hardware.
