The FreeBSD NDISulator (otherwise known as Project Evil) takes a Windows driver binary and basically tricks it into thinking it is running on Windows. This feature is still relatively new, but most test cases seem to work adequately.

In order to use the NDISulator, you need three things:

1. Kernel sources
2. Windows XP driver binary (.SYS extension)
3. Windows XP driver configuration file (.INF extension)
