These were extremely difficult to find, but try these links.

At a minimum you'll want 3c90x1.exe and 3c90x2.exe files which are 
self-extracting lha archives to create the two 3.5" disk images for the 
Etherdisk XL package. It had been many years since I went looking for this 
stuff and HP is not making it easy to find now. I suspect it would be even 
more difficult (if not impossible) to find older Etherdisk packages for 
even older network cards.
