Default Installing XP on a laptop

hey guys im trying to install xp onto my acer aspire 3680 series which came with vista home preinstalled. i used nlite to put in the sata drives in the windows xp cd, but now need to find the drivers. ive seen some discussions on different forums about the drivers for xp are not all at the acer website. can anyone give me a link with all drivers?

Can you get into the Device Manager and check to see what type of controller the drives use? There is a site called driverpacks.net but they only list the actually controller name. Not the PC's that they are compatible with.

DriverPacks.net > DriverPacks > DriverPack MassStorage

That might be of help. I see nothing on the Acer site that would be useful myself.
