Steve,
The problem you are having is that this computer was never designed with windows XP in mind. I think you have a couple options, upgrade to Windows 7 which will probably better utilize the hardware in the machine or find out the exact components: Main ones Sata hardware manufacturer and version, Network card information and Video card information and go direct to the vendor and download. Install XP using these drivers and then use Windows Update to try to get the other devices to be detected.
Good luck

If there are any drivers you still can't find. In the device manager, right click on the device and select properties.
Then select the "Details" tab
Use Ctrl+c to copy the device instance ID string.
Then paste it (Ctrl+v) in your reply.

Your best source for drivers is the site of the manufacturer of the device (Intel, Broadcom, ATI, etc.).  Use the Hardware Ids string to identify the mfg.

Thanks for all your help we found the drivers at http://www.wickmanstudios.com .  Not the official site I was looking for, but it works... Again Thank you for all of your ideas and support.
