Hi,

It depends on the hardware emulation you choose. For the virtual Intel Pro/1000 MT there is a driver available from Intel. Just google for PRO2KXP.exe. You can get the file to your VM via the shared folders feature.
AFAIK the PCnet cards have been MS-supported from their install media.
Rumours are that IntelPro emulation has better performance.

kind regards, Arie Bikker
