I prefer Vista to XP - but it's still not all that difficult to get the drivers for XP (if they do exist).
The first step is to check HP for the specifications for the motherboard, and for the names of the drivers that they have for Vista (which'll provide clues as to the names of the XP drivers)
The next step is to check the ECS web pages for that model, and then look for similar models (a just-in-case scenario).
Then, armed with that information, you can figure out the types of drivers that you'll need by some simple deduction.
Also, once XP is installed, you can use the Hardware ID (in the Details tab of the Properties of that device) to further identify the device. Then it's just a matter of searching for the drivers that are available for XP.
