Intel Pro/100 PCI NIC Card Driver for Windows 2007 32x

I recently did a fresh install of Windows 7 32 bit on an old emachine that had a PCI Intel Pro/100 Network card installed in it. Unfortunately, the windows setup installation did not have the drivers for it. A quick look at Intel's website showed that they do not have windows 7 drivers for the Intel Pro/100 PCI Card. I tried downloading the driver pack for Vista and running it in compatibility mode, but that did not work.
Fortunately, these drivers did: Intel Pro 100 for Windows 7
  1. Download the file
  2. Run the file (it will extract to Dell\Drivers Folder)
  3. If it does not install automatically, go to device manager and install from there, choosing the windows XP folder for the driver path. (from the update device driver button)

Before installing Windows 7, go to the device manufacturer's website to download the latest driver for this device. After installing Windows 7, install the saved driver.
