    howdy and welcome to TSG. :)

    The VEN_ is the vendor ID, the DEV_ is the device id; enter both of them at http://pcidatabase.com. That will give you the details you need to track down the driver.

    The ethernet device is a Intel PRO/100 VE Network Connection and was a very common one in older desktops.
    Its Windows XP driver (PRO2K3XP_32.exe) can be obtained from here.

    The display/video device is part of the Intel D865GLC motherboard - which is apparently what's in that old desktop.
    Its Windows XP driver (GFX_XP2K_MCE_14.17.0.4396_PV.EXE) can be obtained from here.

    I doubt very seriously that you need the driver for the Intel chip-based modem and that you use a 56K dial-up connection.
    If the modem is a separate card and isn't integrated into the motherboard, remove it.

    Ven 8086 is Intel so those are all Intel parts.

    The drivers that I took the time to locate and provide for you apply to the vendor codes and device codes that you submitted.

    Unless the other computer has the same ethernet device and display device and has the same Windows operating system, it will need different drivers.
