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 ... ?

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
