Unambiguously NO.  There's no software support for the 82335 on NT and, given
that NT is a real hard case about access to hardware through anything but
NT's approved I/O techniques, no way to improvise it, either.

Please note that MXD does not claim any support for the INES card.  It may
work or may not.
