Specs: win98se, celeron 600mhz 256 mb ram

restoring one of my old computers back to good old fashoned windows 98, i found every single driver i needed, exept for my generic chinese network card i paid like 3 dollars for, it worked fine under windows xp, but 98 does recognise it, theres no model number or anything on it, Is there a driver for a generic network card for windows 98 as there is in xp?

"Is there a driver for a generic network card for windows 98 as there is in xp?"

Obviously not or Win 98SE would have installed it.
Is it an ISA or a PCI card, or is it a tiny proprietary card that installs in a special short AMR slot, or is it a tiny proprietary card that installs on a proprietary header?
Does it have a FCC ID number on it?
Can you make out the chip make and/or model numbers?

XP does not have generic drivers, so why should W98SE. The NIC has a main CHIP usually Realtek or Intel, if not use the DOS version of HWINFO:

Maybe this utility will help identify the NIC. http://www.zhangduo.com/unknowndevi...

The closest to a generic card was early ISA cards. Many manufacturers made cards compatible to the the Novell NE1000 and later NE2000.
