ML115 G5 Vista Drivers

For various reasons, I need to put Vista (Ultimate 32bit) onto this server.
I found nVidia Vista drivers and that has sorted everything except the Broadcom LAN interface.
I found drivers on their website but they seem not to install.
Any pointers for Vista LAN drivers??

Thanks
Steve

No. Gave up and put Win Server 2008 on it instead which was fine!

How about running ESXi on the server and installing Vista as a VM?

Re: ML115 G5 Vista Drivers

Did try that and Vista ran ok and could be accessed remotely but I needed to run it as a local session through the attached monitor and seemed unable to do that.
To be honest, this was about 3 months ago and I can't remember the details of why it didn't do what I wanted :-)
Anyway, Server 2008 solved the problem!

Just wanted to add the generic driver that comes with Vista works (broadcom 5721 or so). in essence, everything works fine.
