How do I copy or extract drivers from Windows XP?

I am teaching my self how to use a program called Acronis True Image Echo. I am familiar with the product (backing up & restoring) but there is a new tool they added called Universal Remote which allow me to restore an image to an different PC or different HAL. My question is concerning the drivers that already exist on the PC I want to image to.

The program will allow me have a user-defined location to look for device drivers. If I have PC A that I imaged and want to restore that image to two different set of PCs B & C, while B & C are still bootable I want to locate the device drivers to store them in my user-defined location for the restore. It sounds simple but I feel that it is not. Is there a location in Windows where all the active drivers are stored? Likewise, this is my question but if I am going about this the wrong way please advise if there is a better way.

I will have to test the trail version and see...my concern with that option it creates a backup of the drivers but will it be in a propitiatory form where I cannot place them in my user-define area for the image restoring process. My guess is if the app backed it up then it is need to restore. However it is an option...the floor is still open to more solutions?

Thx
