Problem with setting up my Atheros drivers

Hello everyone, I recently decided to install Windows XP on dual boot with windows 7 installed first but I faced a major problem with most of my drivers but most importantly, my network drivers. I cant seem to find a way to install my Windows 7 network drivers into Windows XP. Is there any way to do so?

Im using the following network drivers:

Atheros AR5B93 Wireless Network Adapter
Atheros AR8131 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller

Any help will be largely appreciated, thanks a lot.

You need XP network drivers for XP. 64 bit Win 7 drivers will not work on a 32 bit Win XP installation.

Is this (Atheros Communications) the correct website to get drivers from Atheros? I tried to get to the downloads page from the Atheros homepage, but I couldn't find a link, so I searched for it on Google. However, I don't entirely trust Google when searching for drivers.
