I'm in a state of confusion...and severe FRUSTRATION!
I bought a PCChips board. And I have tried EVERYTHING to install the driver for the LAN (inboard) This is a P23G with a VIA P4M800Pro Northbridge and VT8237R+ Southbridge with the "Fast Ethernet LAN Single Chip 100Base-TX/10Base-T Physical Layer Solution." Do I need to set a jumper to "turn on" this feature?

I have used my PC Chips Disk and downloaded over ONE HUNDRED seperate downloads(ALL ZIPPED=producing over a thousand files) to try to Install this Lan Driver and the closest I come is: 1.) "Wrong NIC -Press Exit" or 2.) the 'yellow !' in my Hardware Device Driver Reports ! (not working.)
I have a Zoom X6 ADSL combo modem Wireless Router which simply has 4 RJ45 (Physical) connection points--ONE of which connects to said "dead" In Board RJ45 Lan connector.
Someone told me this is not a PC Chips or a VIA Product

Two of my roommates-- now former friends-- on my wireless network are threatening to poison me if they have to play ONE more P.C. Game !
Can ANYONE HELP me ? Can anyone HUMOR me by simply telling me the file name for said driver? I need to Install a driver that actually DRIVES this On-Board LAN connection?

VIA VT823x onboard LAN driver according to the PC Chips website, as listed for the P23G ver 1.0 and 3.0 (this is a zipped file, windows should tell you to unpack everything, do so. You need the files in the VIA823x\XP\X86\ folder once it's unpacked.

Do not assume anything
