New Dell Inispiron 531S ~ No Windows Home Server Drivers MIA

So, what do you do when you get a brand new Dell? You load Windows Home Server and then realize there are no drivers in the clouds!
I have a Dell Inspiron 531S (Service Tag: 3B20KF1) with an AMD Athlon chip. It has an intergrated NIC card and other intergrated items that I need drivers for.
The NIC is apparantly a nVidia nForce Network Controller that, once I get the driver for I'm sure I can get the PC online and get the other drivers.
THe problem is it seems no one has drivers for Home Server yet?
Please help...

Two things:

Have you tried the Vista drivers?

Since it's a new unit, have you contacted Dell support to ask them about driver availability? Not everything they have to offer is always available directly on their site.

Home Server uses Server 2003 drivers. In most cases, XP drivers will work if Server 2003 specific drivers are not available.

I'd be careful with VISTA drivers as HOME SERVER is built on Windows 2003, which is the XP kernal - NOT the Vista Kernal (that's Windows Server 2008).
