Need Windows XP Drivers for HP Pavilion S-3000's NIC

I have an HP Pavilion S-3000 slimline tower that I recently reset to factory settings running Windows Vista. I was very unhappy with the performance under Vista so I decided to install Windows XP Pro. However, the installation did not detect the onboard network card. I could not find the XP driver on HP's support site, so I currently have no network access.

Does anyone know where I can find this driver?

Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Information.
Now select  "Components" and highlight "Problem Devices".
All hardware devices with a driver problem will be listed here.
Make a note of the first line of the PNP Device ID line of the entry. It will show a Vendor number and a Device number (VENxxxxDEVxxxx) both four digits long.
Look up those numbers here:   http://www.pcidatabase.com/index.php

This will tell you the manufacturer and the chip number.  
Check the manufacturer's website first or google them - or post them here

It's an nForce430 board
The drivers in this thread should fix this for XP as HP doesn't have XP chipset drivers

Thanks m4nd4li4. I tried that, but when I select XP as the OS it does not show any NIC drivers.

Sorry guys. Wasn't able to get access to this PC again. But I'm pretty sure one of your solutions will work, so I'll split points and close now. Thanks for your patience.
