Dimension 8300 - Can't find driver for Network Controller

This question is not answered

I am doing a fresh install of Win XP Pro on my boss' computer. I have the same model at my home and had no trouble locating the driver for my home machine. I have downloaded and installed both the Broadcom and Intel 10/100 drivers...I get a message stating that these drivers do not contain information about my hardware. The only network this machine has is the onboard NIC, no other network cards are installed. Unfortunately I am coming into the install late because he started the install himself. Could the order in which the drivers were installed have anything to do with this? And also to note, I have updated both the BIOS and the Chipset driver.
