I guess so. But I am wondering if the inf file really needed or not
in this case.

Basically I am just wondering if the following statement is true or not.
>>> When a mutlifunction gadget has more than 1 configuration, Windows does not

I am thinking the inf file is not necessary.
"When the system detects that a USB device is composite, it loads the
USB common class generic parent driver (usbccgp.sys)."

And since 1st configuration RNDIS is what desired, nothing needs to be done.

Obviously you have the device to test, I would be interested to know your
test results under XP, Vista and Win7.
