Drivers for win xp 32 bit for Dell N5010

Friends i have bought a Dell laptop about a month ago with windows 7 home basic 64 bit OS,320 GB hard disc and i3 processor. I want to install xp-home-32-bit as second OS.My problem is:
Where to get drivers for xp 32 bit. Searching on Dell site i found out they have drivers for windows 7 and vista 64 bits only for my model.
I am all ready for installation of xp except above issues. (i.e. i have all necessary softwares like nLite,EasyBCD,netframework etc.)
won't my win 7 64 bit drivers work on xp 32 bit ?
Can you tell me exactly which drivers are needed ? And where the make and version of each can be found on my laptop(Dell Inspiron 15R (N5010)) ?

As you said, Dell only provides Windows 7 64-bit and Vista 64-bit drivers for this model. For reference, here is the Dell support page for the laptop. It might help others to find the required drivers.

I don't know how far you have gotten, but I just wanted to add that when going from XP to 7 on my computer I used google to find a lot of my drivers before hand. I just typed in the component and let google find me the right driver. Just take the time to read over version numbers and other details on each driver.
