Ethernet Card Problem

Here's the Scenerio. I recently went to install an Ethernet card on my Laptop from a 3 1/2" floppy (My Laptop's old). The OS is Windows 98 and apparently there was a corrupt file on the disk. My Laptop no longer recognizes the card or even tries to Install the disc. Common sense would dictate that I find the Origin company and download the driver to disc, but I'm worried that I'll have a conflict due to the two drivers. Especially since I can't find the old Corrupt driver.

I guess the question is, the new driver should overwrite the old file, evn though the old file is corrupt, correct? In the even that the I can't access the card, even with a new a driver, is there a card out there that accepts wireless and wired signals? That's probably the route of the question.

Thanks for reading,

Installing a new driver should overwrite whatever's there, yes.

Is there a combo wired/wireless card out there? That's a damn good question! I dunno, man.
