Use both Chipset downloads, video, then check your Device Manager to see which Network adapter, Sound, and Touchpad driver your netbook has and download those too.

Take your time, you can stretch a project like this out so it doesn't burn you out

You have a tutorial there, shoot me any questions.

You will be experienced by the time this is over! And Nlite is one of the coolest programs out there. If you got carried away, you could customize your whole XP on those tabs! (Win7 too, using Vlite)

Err? What's Chipset? I don't find that in the Gateway website.
I think Chipset is motherboard...
And I really don't care much on customation except installing it and working fine.

motherboard - use both unless you can narrow it down from specs. It will have your Storage controller which is why the bluescreen - XP needs a driver for hard drive controller which is too modern for that older XP installer's drivers.

Can't download? Why not?

So it's best to download everything anyway right? And I won't have to deal with looking for what I need?

I have no idea why. I just click download now, but nothing happens. No pop-up of the file. Can you try it yourself? Is it maybe because of Firefox?

Yes, the download box may pop up underneath the window you're in. Save to card if it will store them til you slipstream into XP

I use IE8 which comes with Win7. Firefox should open a download box. Look underneath, or on taskbar

How did you download everything before?

Yeah it opens, but like it takes too long. >.>

Anyways, is it fine if I just download everything and slipstream every driver I downloaded into it? Anything happens?

Sometimes when I'm downloading, the box does not appear and takes me here:
