From personal experience: If you do not want to screw-up your XP system,
NEVER rely on Windows Updates drivers. You may need to re-install XP
after the driver update!

Always that the time in locating the correctly drivers from the
manufacturer's web site. WHQL certification for the drivers IS RECOMMENDED.
Download them, so you can save them for later use again. Install the
drivers when you have all your "wits" (i.e.: not tired or in a rush).
