New pc, New hardware, Cant Install

  1. Hi, I have a new pc:

    OS: Windows Vista Ultimate.
    Motherboard: ASUS P4C800
    HardDrive: Maxtor 120GB
    RAM: 1 Gb
    Video Card: RADEON 9800
    CPU: Intel Pentium 4 3.00GHz

    Well i finished installing the OS, and once i log into my user account it finds new hardware which it wants to install / upgrade.

    The problem is that one of those hardware it wants to install is the Ethernet connection in the motherboard. That's for internet right?

    Well in order to repair that Ethernet connection i need internet no?

    How do i fix it without internet??

    Here are the things it wants to install (its in spanish, but i think its recognizable):


    Translation (close approximation):

    1) Controller of storing devices
    2)Ethernet Controller
    3) Multimedia sound controller
    4) PCI Device
    5) Multimedia sound controller (again, i dont know why)
    6 + 7 + 8) those are my usb stick, np with those.

    I'm guessing once Ethernet device is working, I'll be able to update the rest through Windows Vista right?

    Any ideas how to fix Ethernet without internet? Or any ideas on how to fix this?

    PS: Remember internet is not working int hat pc due to the Ethernet problem.
