Default Cisco 4-port network card in Win7

I got a 4-port PCI-X network card thinking it's an Intel card since it got Intel chips on it. Turns out it's not an Intel card but some kind of Cisco network card (may be PIX-4FE). I plugged it into my Win7 machine and it wasn't recongized at all even if I try auto driver search. Cisco's website is no help at all and just wondering if someone out there is running a Cisco NIC in Win7. Otherwise, I'll just throw it into the recycle bin.

Only the PIX OS is compatible for that 10/100 NIC.

Hmm I think managed to get it to run under ESXi but I moved away from that platform. Another wonderful purchase from Freegeek.
