For example:

Hope this helps.

Windows 2003 probably has the driver for your NIC, but can't find because  
your card is one revision higher, let's say Gigabit 123b, and windows only  
has a driver for Gigabit123a or something like that.
Quite often (~90% of the time) this is the case on Windows 2000 and XP  
when it can't find a driver.
One (or a few) revisions higher or lower doesn't matter for the driver.
although I don't have any experience with Windows 2003, I think I can  
safely assume this is the case for windows 2003 to.
You will have to select the driver manually.
