So I installed Win XP to my friend and I gave him CD with drivers to install it. But instead that drivers are installed, they totally disappear from Device manager, meaning that there is no "Network adapters" in device manager on which you can click small +

Tl;dr No "network adapters" showing in device manager at all, no any yellow ! or ?

in device manager, right-click any device and choose 'scan for hardware changes'

depending on the service pack it may not recognize the adapter, but you won't see it either until you have the correct driver installed which will initiat a search for the adapter.
