Default drivers upgrade?

Hi im upgrading my thinkpad R32 to XP and Im wondering about a possible driver issue. I currently have win2kpro and when i installed it i had to install the drivers from a separate disc. Would it be wise to go to ibms website and dl the drivers i will need for the xp OS onto disk for easy installation after i have the xp OS installed? Just trying to have some foresight on this whole upgrade process. thanks for any advice.

Yes...It would be wise to get the drivers, from IBM's website, as they most likely have the latest drivers, for your laptop.
