you shouldn't need drivers

XP should install defaults, then ask you for drivers.

If you need drivers, they are downloadable from the HP/Compaq website. Download them, burn them to a CD, then install XP and when asked for drivers insert your CD with the drivers from the HP/Compaq website.

Good luck.
