    I have a laptop with a New Media PCMCIA NIC. I haven't found an XP or W2K driver for it, but I was able to use the Netgear FA410 driver with W2K (same actual unit). XP reads the manufacturer stamp and refuses to let me load an alternate driver. Any ideas on how I can get around this? (I know-break down and buy a new card-but I'm cheap)

    yeah I doubt you'll be able to do it...epsecially if on top of the brands not matching that netgear driver being 2k, thats a double whammy..sorry man
