    I would think that xp would have a default eathernet driver built in. Everytime I downgraded; I never had to get a driver for it ... It's strange that yours would do that. It's almost like it's a lite version or something. Or maybe it's a version that has been altered to remove some things ...

    What it could be is a oem version for another pc ???

    Hmmm .. Did you get a driver disk with your hp, or, do they still have the stupid restore disk crap ... ?
