Welcome to LQ!

Linux XP is probably not the best choice. IMO this project is not following the true spirit of Linux and free software. Why don't you use a well supported, free and stable Linux distribution as Ubuntu/Kubuntu/Xubuntu? *buntu will probably install all required drivers without any hassle. Linux is Linux, even if it's made look like Windows XP. In case you still want to stick with this Linux XP you probably need to fiddle with kernel, maybe even build a custom kernel.
