Finding drivers for XP to rollback from VISTA

This is not a question, but rather additional information for folks that have purchased a Toshiba Satellite computer and are wanting to revert back to XP and uninstall Vista.  I had to call the toshiba technical support line and pitch a fit as the 'fairly official' word from Toshiba was that they do NOT support any other Operating system than what was shipped installed at the factory at the time of purchase.  Of course this can not be as what about Upgrades (beyond Vista) or incompatability with 3rd party COTS software.  

Eventually they saw the light and gave me the TOSHIBA link to the XP drivers for the Manufacturer and Model of my motherboard.  In case anyone has the same 'Series of laptop as the A205' then the XP hardware drivers for this series can be located by going to the toshiba site and selecting drivers for the A105-S4004 satellite laptop or going direct to:
