Acer Aspire T630 LAN Driver

I really should be able to sort this, but my brain hurts! Re-installed XP on a new HDD. As often happens, there is no LAN driver. Went to the Acer website on another PC and downloaded the XP version of the driver. Unzipped it. All I see in the folder are Rtlnic and Rtlnicxp - both have the 'windows doesn't know what this file is' symbol.

Any help would be appreciated.

Panic over - got it from a third-party site. Not sure why the official Acer one didn't work.

When you go to device manager and double click your lan then driver then update driver does a box not come up giving you the opportunity to browse your PC to the downloaded driver?
