Since ACER doesn't provide Windows XP drivers for that laptop, you must go to the manufacturers web site of each of the various components you need drivers for and see if they offer XP versions.

Hi there
try -- all FREE too.

Go through this stuff -- it looks complicated but isn't really.
You can also "Slipstream" these drivers into XP so you don't have to find SATA drivers ("No hard disks found") etc.

You need to build a "Base" and then add the other ones you need -- it's not difficult BTW just read and follow the instructions.
