If it's a computer that was bought recently, I wouldn't bother. If it's a custom built computer, then you are fine. Basically, getting drivers for a computer that was bought in a store is about as fun as changing a flat tire on the side of the interstate.
Also, I will forewarn you that to install XP, you will need to get the SATA control drivers so that the XP installation disc will recognize your SATA drive.
