lost network after HD replacement and XP Pro install

I replaced the HD on my M52 8212 Think Center after the old one crashed loaded the XP Pro OS and now have no internet access.  I have ? for all items in the Device Manager Other Devices folder.  Will not  recognize the CAT5 cable is pluged in and I have no sound.  I looked up drivers on the Lenovo site and am not sure which download I need.  I have no NIC installed and need just the MB network drivers.  Which file should I install?

Betreff: lost network after HD replacement and XP Pro install

After installing XP you'll also need to install the Lenovo Drivers:


You can install the Ethernet-Driver followed by XP Service Pack 3 and then Microsoft .Net Framework 2

Download and install ThinkVantage System Update  then and execute it.
