Re: XP Pro can't see the motherboard Lan.
Um, never was an issue with me. I have so many etherlink adapters kicking around, I just use one which is WinXP compatible to connect to the internet in order to update the driver for the one which isn't supported with the WinXP installer and then remove the NIC I installed when done.
Ethernet NIC's are so cheap ($12.00 for a 10/100NIC) that it doesn't make sense to abandon your tries so quickly. Besides, if you really wanted to make it work, use a different computer to download the drivers for the Mobo on it's website:
Just copy and paste the link I provided in your address bar of your web browser for the support page and you can download whatever you need.
I use USB memory sticks to transfer files easy, or my camera memory card with it's reader. Burn a DVD or CD if you don't have one, and even a floppy disk may even work.
However that is only if you know what an address bar is, what copy and paste is or where your num-lock is on your keyboard.

I refuse to use DVD disks as they die by oxidization, get scratched and would take too many of them to write for the data I have.
