I'm looking for drivers for an Acer Aspire One Netbook Model ZG5.  It came with Linux installed and my niece wants XP on it.  

TIA

You can get the drivers directly from Acer's Web site.

http://www.acer.com

What is the exact model of the laptop?  ZG5 is the series.

Here is the link to their Drivers page.  f

Select "Netbook", then "Aspire ONE", and then the model number of the laptop.  They all start with "AO" and then some numbers.  You should be able to find that on the placard with the serial number.  It might be under the battery.

Thanks for all of the suggestions that I've already tried.  

The ACER site didn't have any details of the model ZG5.  Their site could not find the model even when I typed the serial number in.  

I eventually solved the problem by finding the maker of the various components and downloading the drivers from other site.  Managed to find all except the Realtek Lan driver but as this is not going to be used I will not bother.
