  1. [The laptop is a Toshiba Satellite A100 model]

    Alright, my problem begins as I tried installing XP on a Vista laptop, the install was easy of course, no problems, but when I get into XP the Ethernet/Wireless don't register. So I tried installing the drivers manually, every driver from the toshiba website classified under XP for WLAN/LAN didn't work. I might be missing something, and if this description of my problem is too vague feel free to ask more specific questions.

    Also, I only asked about the internet drivers because I'm assuming Windows Update can help me find the rest of them, as it's what I've done in the past on other machines that have needed certain drivers.

    Thanks in advanced for any help,
    Ross.
