NIC Driver for HP dc7600 desktop

I've installed Windows 2003 Server on an HP dc7600 desktop PC. I'm unable to see the LAN Network Interface in the Network Connections. Having checked the settings in the Device Manager it seems that the device drvier for the NIC is not installed with this Win 2003 installation. I've downloaed the NIC driver from HP's web site:
http://h18007.www1.hp.com/support/files/hpcpqdt/us/family/model/6161.html?lang=en&cc=us&prodSeriesId=472277

It does not have a specific driver for Windows 2003 Server, So I have tried both for XP and 2k drivers. None have worked.
I've connected the LAN cable that is showing the two lights at the back of the box.

Can anyone has a clue?
