What Network Card do you have? Is it the built-in network card? You should be able to look on Dell website to see what the actual Network card is then search manufacture website for Windows 2003 Server drivers.

For an example if you have a built-in intel network card you can search for model number for drivers

No, because Server OS's are not supported by Dell on workstations.  Although some XP drivers will work for 2003, the best place to get drivers for unsupported OS's is from the individual device manufacturer.  In this case, the 380 uses an onboard Broadcom 57780 ethernet chip, and the link to the driver on Broadcom.com is in my first post.
