Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad R51 Notebook ?

Hi, I have an IBM R51 Type 2887 Thinkpad that came with Windows XP Home edition. I formatted the laptop and put the Windows XP Professional in it. However, it could not install few key drivers (Eg. CD ROM, LAN, Wireless, Bluetooth, etc). How can install those drivers. Without LAN or Wireless, I can't even go online to find support from that laptop. Please help. Umang Taneja
