You add this by going to control panel and then multi-media and then click on devices and then add, you will then need an Nt driver for your device, next click on unlisted or updated device and then Nt will ask you for the loction of the driver you are going to install. After the install you will have to reboot and see if then it works.

I don't know if it works for joypad, but there is a driver for generic joystick on Windows NT CD-ROM in \DRVLIB\MULTIMED\JOYSTICK\X86.
You install it just like wayneb discribed.
