The driver is already present on XP, but the INF file to set it up is only included out-of-the-box on Vista+. Copy this to Notepad, name the file wceisvista.inf and save to C:\Windows\INF:

; Remote NDIS based Internet Sharing device Setup File
; Copyright (c) Microsoft Corporation
; WceIsVista.INF -- This is the inf installation script for 
;                   RNDIS-over-USB host driver for Intenet Sharing device.

Signature           = "$Windows NT$"
Class               = Net
ClassGUID           = {4d36e972-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}
Provider            = %Microsoft%

%Microsoft%          = WindowsCeDevices,NTx86,NTamd64

%WindowsCeDevice%    = RNDIS.NT.5.1, USB\Class_E0&SubClass_01&Prot_03

%WindowsCeDevice%    = RNDIS.NT.5.1, USB\Class_E0&SubClass_01&Prot_03


; Windows LH specific sections -----------------------------------

Characteristics = 0x84   ; NCF_PHYSICAL + NCF_HAS_UI
BusType         = 15
include         = netrndis.inf
needs           = Usb_Rndis.ndi

include     = netrndis.inf
needs       = Usb_Rndis.ndi.Services

; no sys copyfiles - the sys files are already in place

Microsoft             = "Microsoft Corporation"
WindowsCeDevice       = "Remote NDIS based Internet Sharing Device"

Then try to get Device Manager to install it. If all goes well, it'll only complain about unsigned driver.

Another way to add the RNDIS driver is to install e.g. Active Sync 4.5
After installing WinXP has detected a new device RNDIS as Windows Mobile-based Internet Sharing Device

or, manually extract the .msi file in CMD:

msiexec /a "activesync_4.5.msi"

and indicate the path to the driver when connecting a smartphone and enabling USB tethering.


P.S. WceIsVista.INF adds a device called Remote NDIS based Internet Sharing Device
