Every time I've installed Vista with that network card in a machine, Vista
hits the internet and gets the drivers for it.
3C905B-TX, but I can't see there being much difference with one being a C
and the other a B.
Of course you'll have to have another way for Vista to get to the internet
to locate the drivers. After that, the card works great. I'm sure there are
driver's out there. You can do the work, if you want them bad enough.
