I think the driver you are looking for is "NE2000 Compatible" and should be available in Windows. Since the emulated card it's not PNP aware it must be added and configured manually (irq, address, etc.) I got it working using the PCAP method, SLIRP never worked for me.
This is how I got it to work (ignore the OSX graphics stuff, I'm at work and using this with WINE to get the screenshots)
1. First install npcap from here: https://nmap.org/npcap/
. Make sure you select WinPcap compatibility, otherwise it won't work.
2. Select the Novel NE2000 adapter in PCem (screenshot: https://monosnap.com/file/hwQbTWpmmgc3a ... cV0Bp30euL
3. Click on the nic settings button and copy the IRQ and address values (screenshot: https://monosnap.com/file/ilMw0Wg6YWTWU ... 4oiflHWwg3
). By default they are IRQ = 10, Address = 0x300. This is important because the emulated card is not PNP aware and you will have to set these values manually later.
4. Set network type (SLIRP or PCAP). If you are using PCAP also select the physical network interface you are binding it to. (screenshot:

). If you are using PCAP please make sure you are using a wired interface, Wifi are kind of hit and miss...
5. Install Windows 95/98/whatever as usual
6. If the "NE2000 Compatible" adapter doesn't appear in the Device Manager then go to Control Panel and use the "Add New Hardware" applet to add it (use auto detection or add it manually, whichever method works for you). You might have to restart your virtual machine after this step ends.
7. Once the step above is done and the machine restarted, open the device manager, right click on the "NE2000 Compatible" device, select "Properties" and in the dialog that appears click the manual configuration button (screenshot: https://monosnap.com/file/zRJxnuOFy2qL9 ... nUucrFhDl9
8. Set IRQ to 10 and address to 300 like in this screenshot: https://monosnap.com/file/LfnbPm9pqun39 ... U73CFEOgfs
then click "OK" and shut down the virtual machine when prompted.
10. boot up the machine then right click on the "Network Neighborhood" icon, select properties and add the TCP/IP Protocol (ADD -> Protocol -> Microsoft TCP/IP) screenshot: https://monosnap.com/file/oPm4yXiirGHq4 ... HQT3nRv76J
. You might have to restart the machine again
11. Boot the machine (if needed) and have fun. Networking should be up and running now.
