NIC - Driver for NIC on Server 2008

I have an old HP Proliant ML330 G2 and have just installed Server 2008 on it. Everything works fine apart from the NIC. Does anyone know where I can get a driver that is compatible with Server 2008. The NIC is found on the SCSI controller board with VGA and the NIC. Please help. I don't really want to have to buy an addon card.

Thanks for the info. Spoken with HP, most unhelpful. No drivers are available for the card on svr 2008. Reverting back to svr 2003. Will wait until we replace the hardware before continuing with 2008.

Found server 2008 doesn't support older hardware very well! Cheers for your help.
I ran into the same problem. There seems to be a problem with Windows Server 2008 detecting the correct driver. If you login after installation and open Device Manager, you can manually add the Broadcom 57xx driver to the NIC and then everything will work fine.

Make sure you adjust the Windows Firewall or you will not have Internet access.
