Default IBM T23 Problem

I tried out Kubuntu Linux for a few days on my IBM T23 laptop. Not bad, but I switched back to Win2K. I'm trying to get all the drivers back on, but the display driver is giving me troubles.

I'm getting the driver straight from IBM's website, but Win2k won't detect it, either through the Device Manager or Add/Remove Hardware. Says it's unable to locate the driver, even though I'm pointing it in the right direction.

Any ideas?

Thinkpad right? hmmm..was there an actual installer that could be downloaded? I have found this to be the best solution for those ******* T23's ;-)

It wasn't an installer, no, it was a packaged file that unzipped the supposed drivers into a folder. During the driver installation, I was supposed to point to that folder. But that didn't help much...
