are there available drivers for proprietary hardware(the originals that came w/ my computer)? where can i get them? i have an internal 56k V.90 modem and built-in sound. i plan to perform a full install of winxp pro on my pc. tnx.
You will probably be surprised at how few drivers you need to install. Windows XP comes complete with a huge number of drivers, and just gets on with installing them itself. However, make sure you have a list of all the hardware that will need drivers just in case. In my experience, the only driver I needed to install for the computer hardware were for the onboard sound and updated ones for the motherboard chipset.
