This driver is useful for people who for example use one of the newer
Thinkpads. It should work on the Thinkpads from Lenevo from the
400, 500 and 700 series with an Intel NIC that are currently not
supported by eComStation. Please note that this NIC driver does not
support wireless chipsets, but only ethernet wired adapters.

** Obtaining the driver **

People with an active eComStation software subscription can download
the driver by logging in at http://www.mensys.com/login and then click
on "downloads". Select "Mensys B.V. Software Subscription Services for
(your eComstation version)" and select "Access eComStation BetaZone".

In the eComstation betazone select "files" and then in the filter menu
option "Intel e1000 NIC driver".

** Getting support **

In order to receive support for this driver please refer to the included
README.TXT file. We need your feedback on this driver in the right
place, so please follow the instructions on how to properly report a bug.
