How do I get SQL Server Driver 10.0 on a client machine?

I have been using SQL 2000 for a long time, but have moved over to SQL 2008 recently.  My problem is that my connection string used the driver/provider below, however at times I have problems wit it.  I need to use the new 10.0 driver, but I have no idea how to get the new driver on each individual Client's machine.  They all use Windows XP.
      Old -->  DRIVER=SQL Server;      --  New  --> DRIVER=SQL Server Native Client 10.0;
       Old -->  Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;  --  New  --> Provider=SQLNCLI10.1;

Thanks in advance for any help

Old Conn String
ODBC;Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;DRIVER=SQL Server;SERVER=MyServer;Trusted_Connection=Yes;DATABASE=MyDatabase;TABLE=dbo.tbl_MyTable

New Conn String
ODBC;Provider=SQLNCLI10.1;DRIVER=SQL Server Native Client 10.0;SERVER=MyServer;Trusted_Connection=Yes;DATABASE=MyDatabase;TABLE=dbo.tbl_MyTable
