Yeah, something like that.

The previous version of the .inf network installer scripting language was an 
iterative programming environment allowing direct execution of whatever you 
wanted as well as direct manipulation of the registry. Now, the ,inbf 
language is inference-based and I haven't figured out yet how to cause the 
adapter installation AND the service installation to occur from the same 
invocation of the network installer GUI.

Any insight from anyone would be appreciated.
