Question lan port driver, where do i find them?

a friend of mine want me to format and xp her comp. however, i dont know what brand of lan port she has and thus cannot find a driver so she can get internet. i know that some comps dont need specific drivers while as others do. *note* i have formatted yet, hehe. to be honest, i havent pulled it apart therefore i dont know anything about here hardware atm. I know this is a very general question, but can anyone lead me in the right direction?

There are certain pieces of software out there that may be able to tell you what it is. For instance, Unknown Devices may do the trick. Then you will just have to go to the manus. web site and place the model number in the search field on the site.
The easiest way to tell is to read what's physically on the card. Unknown Devices may be able to tell you who made it and the like....but there may be a certain hardware revision on the card itself.
