If you are using a Dell, HP, etc.

you should have driver cds with your computer to install after the re-installation of XP. If not, you can always go the manufacturer's website and download the correct drivers there.

Windows NT version 6 is Vista (among others). You appear to need an XP driver for your NIC. I hope this helps. Let me know if you have further questions.

You should be able to download drivers here if you can't get them from the site of the NIC's mfg. You need to know the model of the device.
