I don't see how it would be too new. I could install XP drivers on my current rig if I wanted.

According to my research on the matter the issue is driver support for certain hardware in the laptop itself. I know installing XP on that machine is possible because I've seen it done, but it apparently requires driver and file manipulation that is beyond my current skills.

Try slipstreaming the SATA drivers onto the disc with nLite

Well I found an article online that gives a method of slipstreaming SP3 onto a disk to install the OS on that specific laptop. But, how would I go about doing your suggestion?

Same program I suggested. You use it to slipstream anything on to Windows XP.

nLite - Deployment Tool for the bootable Unattended Windows installation
