duel boot driver question

Gentlemen / Ladies
I have just read a great tutorial in these forums about a duel boot (Windows 7 / XP). MY question is about XP drivers.....after you have succeeded in installing XP as your other OS. Please tell me what I need to know about drivers as I am new to all this.Do I need to be in XP and find and download a whole bunch of Drivers? thanks Mango

Is XP already installed? Most people dual boot with one OS already there. If not you will need to set XP up normally. Windows update will do most of the work for you and you will have the option to boot to XP or Windows 7 at boot.

You may need some of the latest drivers. I would just run Windows 7 as XP is near death now, but good luck man.
