The TAP driver was originally derived from the CIPE driver, but a lot of 
changes have been made since then and the driver has been upgraded to NDIS 
5.  The CIPE driver as-is will not work with OpenVPN.  OpenVPN requires a 
TUN/TAP driver which is protocol-compatible with the TUN/TAP drivers on 
all the other OSes which OpenVPN supports.

You would need to strip out the NDIS 5 stuff, such as the power management
handling code.
