Apparently all drivers are not available for XP, you have two solutions, try the vista drivers or take a note of all your equipment and try to find drivers separately on the manufacturers web site.
HEre is the page for the vista drivers : http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=2093&lc=en&cc=ca&dlc=en&product=3619353&lang=en
