I guess it's i386 and not 1386? :)
Also, if you go in the "Support" folder, what folders are listed inside?

Let's try something. Choose the option where it asks you to select the driver location manually, and enter the drive letter of the CD. For example, if the CD is tagged as D:, enter D: and click on "Next".

It's saying the wizard could not find the software when I do that. Further down it says if you know another place where the software might be located, click back and the select the Advanced option.

 

Earlier on I found out what Ethernet card is inside and what the driver should be, and I have found the file on the pc c:windows/system32/drivers/asyncmac.sys but I still can't get it to reinstall and it is also on the disk under i386, but it is unobtainable when I go through the advanced bit of installing it from the disk.

Sorry for the late reply. Can you try to download and install this driver:

It looks like there was two different Ethernet Controller drivers download for your computer. Both have the same name, but different version and also "revision". Which means that the one I linked you earlier is maybe not the right revision and this one is.

Its because you have no graphic card drivers installed :) Unfortunately I cannot see which exact graphic card you have, and the drivers download page for your computer model offer drivers for Intel, NVIDIA and AMD. So I guess we'll have to try them all if one doesn't work. However, I have a feeling that you have Intel Graphics. Download and install these drivers:

Restart your computer once the installation is complete.

Click on the one that is an executable file. Most likely the file named "application".

Thanks I've done that and restarted the computer.  Everything is still large though!  This is now XP with service pack 1.
