I have a 1000s and cannot find any device drivers for the NICs, can anyone point me in the right direction ?

The drivers should be on the media that you install from - the Quick Recovery CD.

If this is unavailable, you can order another one from:

Hi Paul,
The drivers do come standard on the initial image installed by the Quick Restore. So either someone has removed the drivers from your system or the system was re-imaged without the Quick Restore. Either way the NICs are a standard BroadCom chipset.
Note: Support will require the original drivers if you should have any problems with the network. You probably will have to Quick Restore the system for full support.

You can use generic drivers from Broadcom who made the NIC chipset. It would be a regular BCM 57xx (5704) driver b57w2k.sys. You'd need (obviously) a Windows 2000 version - currently 8.48: http://www.broadcom.com/support/ethernet_nic/downloaddrivers.php

It is also distributed as 'cp005566.exe' (HP NC10xx/67xx/77xx/150x/320x/325x Gigabit Ethernet NIC Driver for Windows 2000) as part of HP ProLiant Support Pack 7.40B with driver version 8.39. In my experience both would work.
