[X4U] Parallels "XP" -- no network

Was able to get XP running on my Macbook by using a fresh Virtual PC 
Windows XP document on my AL PB as the target OS install file for 

So XP is running but I have no internet access! IE in XP reports 
cannot find server. No matter what I do, in Internet options > 
connections > setup I get no connection. Whether it's a simple 
"connect to the internet," or "set up a home or small office network" 
No joy. It seems to go through the motions of joining a network, but 
still no connection.

In the device manager, XP says Parallels Network Adapter is installed 
but may not work correctly.

The device cannot start (code 10).

However I"m using Airport extreme and I don't know if it's referring 
to that or to an ethernet adapter.

XP was getting internet access when installed via VPC on my AL PB.

I'm running OS 10.5.3, Parallels 3.0 (build 5600). What's the trick 
to getting a network connection?
