2 strikes?

ISA and Windows (or rather Microsoft) does NOT provide drivers most of the time. ISA is pretty much dead, but over at was a note on how to make ISA network cards work.

Again... Microsoft will NOT do this for us.

And I don't duplicate web content,

It won't either until...

You help it along. Unlike the more polished OS you have to help it along by telling it the IRQ and such.

The site about how to help Windows use the old ISA NIC is very important.

Again I write, Microsoft didn't make it "just work."
