First you'll have to get a copy of XP. Then you'll have to install all the XP drivers (not the Vista one's).
I'd suggest saving any recovery partition that may exist, and any recovery disks that you may have.
First copy all the drivers to a CD so that you'll have them handy when it's time to load them.
Next, determine how you're going to load the SATA drivers if you've got a SATA hard drive (either via floppy, or via slipstreaming them into the installation CD).
Then install XP, pressing F6 at the first screen to load the SATA drivers (it says something to the effect of "Press F6 to load SCSI/RAID drivers")
Once the installation is done, insert the CD with the drivers. Install the drivers in the order recommended in this link: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/blogs/usas...?showentry=1253
