As part of my business I tend to reinstall a fair number of customers PC's where they don't have the required driver or recovery cd's.  Obviously a lot of time is taken up by trying to identify what drivers are required and then trying to download them at stupidly slow speeds from the motherboard manufacturers websites (what is it with these websites that they can't offer download speeds any higher than 5kbp/s???)

So, my question is, does anyone know of a free or commercial package that can be installed on a new install of XP and will firstly identify the compomnents in the PC and download the drivers automatically?

Any help would be really useful.
