Let me add an additional note here. Some drivers not NOT allow more
than x addresses to be added. From a programming point of view,
if you over-stuff them, they WILL crash NT on bootup. I have done this
on both NT 3.51 and NT 4.0. Don't ask me which work and which don't,
I don't know. I have had lots of mixed results.
