Missing NetworkInterfaces.plist in Jas 10.4.8

Hello, I installed the Jas 10.4.8 dvd and I have a broadcom wireless card with dev ID of 4311 (it is already listed in the AppleAirPortBrcm4311.kext by default). I followed the " Broadcom Wireless Tutorial" here:




I still followed the rest of the directions, HOWEVER, I do NOT have /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/NetworkInterfaces.plist on my system. It is my understanding that this file is generated when you get your kext loaded and it finds the card. When I was first booting to the jas dvd I noticed some text saying something about missing airport driver, not sure if this is normal but I can't change the en0 to en1 because I have no NetworkInterfaces.plist. Here is a screenshot of my dev id so you know i'm not taking crazy pills:




The card works fine in vista and others with this laptop (acer 3680) have reported success so I'm not sure if it's a problem with my dvd?


Here is the message I get from the DVD in darwin before setup starts:


localhost configd[31] : No Airport Driver found

localhost configd[31] : Error: copyAirPortSCPrefsRef Can't commit preferences: no such Key

localhost configd[31] : something similar to above (goes too fast)


Is there a way to get just the airport stuff separate, or should I download a different version of the DVD? or is this completely normal for jas 10.4.8?
