XP (dual boot) on Windows 7 Machine - Need Help with Finding Drivers

Hello,
I installed XP (dual boot) on W7 machine. Now I need to find drivers.  Hopefully once the ethernet adapter is working the rest will be easier.  Here is the device info from W7 for the ethernet adapter.  Will this work on XP? Where can I find the driver?

Thanks,
JE

It will be part of a nForce driver package from Nvidia. Do you have any specs on the motherboard. You will need to determine what series nforce chipset it has.

Chipset:
NVIDIA MCP61 Rev. A3

GPU:
NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 Rev. A2

With this info can you tell if I can get this to work on XP and with what driver?

Thanks,

You should have no problems with that working in Windows XP. The driver can be downloaded at the link below.

http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_winxp_15.26.html this doesn't have the nForce 4 series listed as supported products but shows up on there site when you search under legacy devices.

http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_winxp_15.24.html This lists the specific chipset so I would probably go with this one. Up to you though.
