NDIS6 support starts with Vista, so presumably NDIS5.x is required for
Windows XP and 2003.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Network_Driver_Interface_Specification

According to the WinPcap documentation, NPF uses NDIS5 for Windows 2000
onwards and NDIS3 for legacy (e.g. 9x) versions. I can't see any mention of
NDIS6, plus the same npf.sys is installed for any Windows OS (only
difference is x64 get an x64 version of nof.sys).

http://www.winpcap.org/docs/docs_412/html/group__NPF.html

Hope that helps! Would NDIS6 support give us any benefit over the current
NDIS5 implementation?

Rob
