In that case you probably want to look for your exact model on this page
http://h20180.www2.hp.com/apps/Lookup?h_lang=en&h_cc=us&cc=us&h_page=hpcom&lang=en&h_client=S-A-R163-1&h_pagetype=s-002&h_query=HP+Mini+1000&submit.x=10&submit.y=9

though I checked a few and they all seemed to end up at the same driver 
so maybe exact model doesn't matter.

ndis wants drivers for Windows XP
