Ok, i managed to install the driver. Tried all version for both XP and 2K i 
could find. If driver install correctly then after more than zero acticity 
it gives me BSOD with BUGCODE_NDIS_DRIVER. According to MS support pages 
this means that "An Ethernet driver indicated that it received a packet by 
using a packet descriptor that the protocol stack is currently using."

Anyone seen anything like that?
