Default finding out rquired driver.

In one of my win98 computers I have put a Realtek PCI Ethernet Adapter. I don't know the model. Is there a program I can use to find out the driver required? I have heard of programs like these but I can't find one. I have put the windows 98 cd in and it cant find a driver for it.

hmm, do you have a computer with windows XP or Windows 2000? If so stick it in one of them- it will load the driver automatically (should anyway)-. then you can find it in Device Manager, get the model number and get the driver from realteks website.
