After putting a new copy of xp on a computer my drivers are not there anymore. By going to intel there is a list of drivers available but how does one know which ones to download and install on the down computer ? I need the internet drivers so I can connect to it and get the rest of the needed drivers to run the system !

You go to the website of your computer manufacturer in the support/drivers/downloads section. Put in the model of your computer and find the drivers. If this is a self built system you go to the web site of the motherboard/LAN card manufacturer. If you tell us the make and model of the computer perhaps we can direct you better.

You will of course have to do this from another computer that is connected to the Internet, put the drivers on a flash drive and tennis shoe network them to your computer.

Go here to the Dell site and enter your service tag which is on the back of the computer. http://www.dell.com/support/ho.....9&l=en
