For 2000, XP, and 2003 you should be fine using the latest committed
changeset as I've run the network and vbd drivers through the MS test

I'm almost finished running the Vista+ version drivers through the MS
testing suite, so should have something I can call stable again for the
newer OS's soon. All the problems I'm finding in the network drivers so
far are not crash related though so they should still work, there are
just a few oddities with statistics reporting and some OID's I should
support but don't. I haven't run the vbd drivers through the test suite
yet though.
