Default Network card change

I am having problems installing a new network card in my Win2k computer, the old card was ok just slow so i thought i would treat it to a new card. But it won't install........
Works ok in my XP machine just not in the Win2k one.
I uninstalled the old card, removed the old driver and physically removed the card. In with the new, auto detect but it won't install
Tried drivers that came with the card, from the chip maker (Realtec) and from the card makers web site ( SOHO ) all with the same negitive result.
Any ideas?
