Need help updating an Intel Pro/100 VE network connection

I'd like to update a driver for my desktop.  It's an Intel PRO/100 VE network connection.  When I search on the Intel site by this name they seem to want the part number from inside my XP Home SP 2 desktop.  I'd probably damage myself and my PC if I tried to open up the box.  Is there an easier way to find the correct driver and install it?

Thanks,
Dick_Y

Hi ryalmokas,

Start->Run->MSINFO32.EXE

Or you can use Everest from http://www.lavalys.com

What is your motherboard number? Drivers are on Intel site, for example

FatherErvin:
The driver install you pointed me to worked perfectly.  Thanks.

Gothmog:
The Aida url didn't work for me.  I then did a Google search on Aida32.  I found many, many broken URL's.  This one explained what happened to Aida32, and pointed me to Everest:

Tapkep:
Thanks for the pointer to Everest.  When I saw your comment at first, I didn't realize that Everest is the replacement for Aida32, by the same company.

Thanks to you all for your quick responses.

Regards,
