Virtual Network Adapter in NT4 installed on a Virtual Server 2005

Hello,

I have made an image of one of my NT4 test servers and loaded it onto the VS2005.
Everything is fine and the NT server starts up just fine.
However it still thinks that the old NIC from the physical server is still installed.

How do I install the Virtual NIC so that I can connect to the network as before?

I believe I have to uninstall the old adapter (a 3Com), nut where do I get the driver for the virtual adapter?

I have tried to install drivers that came with the NIC installed physically in the server running VS2005 without luck.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks.

This is the answer I got on the MS groups:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A guest will always have an Intel/DEC 21140 NIC, regardless of the host
hardware.

You can find a virtual floppy disk in the \Program Files\Microsoft
Virtual Server\Virtual Machine Additions folder that contains the NT 4
drivers for this card.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And it worked!
