Lan drivers for Dell Poweredge 830 Win XP

Installed Win XP Pro on Dell Poweredge 830 server. I know that this OS has not been tested yet on the machine. However, I'm looking for a LAN Driver to suit that configuration. No support from Dell as they haven't tested XP on that machine.
I'm looking at a Broadcom Gigabit driver but can;t download the correct one from Dell that suits XP.

Anyone know where I can get one?

If you get the Device ID, I'll try to find it for you.
In the device manager, right click on the device and select properties.
Then select the "Details" tab
Use Ctrl+c to copy the device instance ID string.
Then paste it (Ctrl+v) in your reply.

The PowerEdge 830  has a Broadcom 5421J NIC ... as Dell does not support client OS's on their servers, you can use the driver for that chipset from Broadcom.

Make sure you use the setup.exe (probably in C:\Broadcom\Driver...\setup.exe), as Broadcom NIC's should seldom be installed from Device Manager.
