Questions regarding HP Pavillion model dv6809wm

Alright, so I recently picked up this notebook. Great price, great features, but like the thousands of other folk, I'm not really into Vista right now.

I've read many guides to switching Vista to XP, and I'm fairly confident it's doable on this specific model. My only concern is that the HP website only has about 2 or 3 drivers for XP that work for this model. My main question is : Are there other drivers that are compatible with this model?

Any suggestions and tips when Downgrading Vista to XP are greatly appreciated, assuming they pertain to this particular series of HP notebooks. Thanks in advance!
