Install a PCMCIA netwok card


I have been trying to install a PCMCIA network card on a laptop running windows NT 4.0.

The card is a 3Com Megahertz 10/100 LAN PC CARD with XJACK connector. I have looked for a "Add new hardware" tab in CP but there isn't one. Can anyone tell me how to add new hardware in Windows NT 4.0?

Thanks in advance.
