    I got the above link from another thread that also had the same type pc.

    also for any drivers that have a yellow question mark in device manager do this:


    How To Find Drivers For An Unrecognized Device

    1. Open Device Manager (Control Panel>System>Hardware>Device Manager)
    2. The hardware whose drivers are missing will appear as Unknown device, so it's easier to locate the device.
    3. Right click on the unknown device and click on Properties.
    4. Under the Properties window click on Details tab and select Device Instance Id from the drop down box.
    5. You should see a code similar to this

    PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27DC&SUBSYS_30868086
    &REV_01\4&1E46F438&0&40F0

    6. The portion of the code highlighted in RED is the Vendor ID and the portion highlighted in GREEN is the Device ID. In this example:

    Vendor ID = 8086
    Device ID = 27DC

    7. Once you have obtained both the IDs, proceed to


    http://pcidatabase.com/


    There you can either search for the vendor from the vendor ID or directly get information about the device along with the vendor name by searching with the device ID.

    8. Then from there you can go directly to the hardware manufactureres website and get the driver.
    ----------------

    and remember after installing xp the very FIRST driver to install is the chipset, this allows all the other drivers to install properly.

    in network settings, you gotta have the right subnet mask and default gateway. DF is just a glorified name for the router.. Most have a 192.168.1.0 address range with the /24 subnet mask but only allow a portion of addresses to work. Dlink usually has the 192.168.0.0/24 address range. Plug in an ethernet cable to one of the four ports on the back of the router, configure your NIC in the 192.168.1.0 (pick a number like .2-.254) range and tell it the router is 1.1..open up a browser and in the address bar just plug in 192.168.1.1 and see if you get into the management console of the router..

    Oops, I just realized this thread is kinda old. Anyway, the above info is good for anybody
