Microsoft does not put the drivers needed on the XP CD. Also it is impossible to tell you what drivers are needed since you are unable to share the model.
-> CAN I ASK WHY YOU DON'T KNOW? All the IBM laptops I've seen have that information on the bottom. Also all the laptop owners I see today know what they own. Was there more to this story like you picked it up from the dumpster?
