New VM not recognizing NIC

I just added a new VM to my existing Hyper-V server.  The new VM is a Windows 2003 R2.  In the Hyper-V settings for this server I assigned a NIC card.  However, when I'm logged on to the new VM it is not seing a NIC.  How do I add it.

From the Action menu of Virtual Machine Connection, click Insert Integration Services Setup Disk. On Windows operating systems, you must close the New Hardware Wizard to start the installation. If Autorun does not start the installation automatically, you can start it manually. Click anywhere in the guest operating system window and navigate to the CD drive. Use the method that is appropriate for the guest operating system to start the installation package from the CD drive.

Just to add some info to the post above. Without the integration services some virtual devices do not work/are not recognized. These "Integration Services" are needed for non Hyper-V aware Operating Systems (such as Server 2003). Server 2008 on the other hand knows when it is running on Hyper-V (when using as a guest OS). The latter is also called an "enlightened" VM.

Thus, to solve your issue you should install the integration services as hanccocka said, or you could opt to use a legacy network adapter (recognized natively by Server 2003).

Hope this explained a bit.
