Problem with drivers on websites such as Drivers Guide is they purport to be for XP and turn out it doesn't support XP.
There's a driver for Windows 2000 for the Netgear model EA201c, also ISA (on other websites the 2 model numbers are used interchangeably, they're probably different but perhaps close enough). click here Windows 2000 is closer to XP than 9x or even NT, so you might try to see if it works at all.
[You may have tried it already.]
Windows detects it as NEC NE2000 compatible probably because although Netgear is the manufacturer of the card, it uses an NEC chip for the card, but the generic driver for the chip doesn't work, or this is the closest chip Windows' detection manages.
If no driver will work, get a PCI lan card. Probably a good thing, as ISA is really out of date.
I managed to get it installed. It wasn't the Driver after all that was the problem but it showed a yellow exclamation mark against the device.
I found out that as well as a Dedicated Audio card being poorly installed missing part of driver codecs and also the onboard audio was on and partly installed this was stoping the Netgear card from regi in the system.
i removed the audio card as the onboard audio was better (makes a refreshing change) and this sorted most thing out.
I now again have a power problem.
