The devices for which the driver needs to be installed will have an exclamation point over them. Right click on the device you want to install and click update driver.
It will ask you if you want to use windows update to which you can reply NO, especially if you are trying to update the network adapter (in that case you have no internet connection so windows update will not work). Click Next and select the option to Install from a specific location and click next. When that window opens Select the option to search for the best driver in these location.
Check the box to Include this location in the search and Click Browse. You should browse to the folder that contains the driver you downloaded. For example most likely it will be C: IBMTOOLS Drivers xxxxxx. Xxxx is the name of the file driver you downloaded.
Refer back to the IBM site if you forgot the name or click on my computer and navigate to the ibmtools/drivers folders to find it. Once you have the xxxxx replaced just click next and voila it will start installing the driver.
