Surely you could search for your relevant Dell drivers on the website:  http://support.dell.com/support/downloads

Then enter your service tag, and you sould be provided with all avaliable drivers.

Ah... I see, Dell are only providing the XP drivers correct?

What you could do is install http://www.aida64.com/ on your pc.
This would provide you with the hardware ID's of the various components, and then you would need to do various google searches for compatible xp drivers for these devices.

Hope the above is of some use.

Yeah, sorry, disregard my ftp link, that says it is only for Vista and Win7

Looks like you are not alone in looking for XP drivers for this laptop:  http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/laptop/f/3518/t/19336492.aspx?PageIndex=1

On page 3, there is a link that says it has all the drivers http://hydlaptopguru.blogspot.com/2011/04/dell-inspiron-n5010-xp-drivers.html

The HM57 Express chipset isn't well supported in XP so you will struggle a little
First you'll need to install XP and to do this you'll need a SATA driver matching the controller on the Intel board
You can download these here (choose 32 or 64 bit as appropriate) then slipstream these drivers onto an XP SP3 CD
That should allow the XP installer to see the hard drive during installation.
Once XP is installed you'll then need to get through and missing devices in Device Manager one-by-one.
I don't think you'll be able to get XP support for the TPM devices on the board though and as security's one of the big selling points of these Inspirons you may want to consider that before embarking on the install.
