System Properties -> Hardware -> Hardware Profiles has what you need. ;)

Or just include BTS driver packs while installing XP for the hardware you will need (chipset, mass storage, LAN, WLAN...). Upon first boot on new hardware it's a bit slow installing all drivers, but once "trained" on various machines it's fine.

Use the modified NTDETECT.COM too, for the machines with buggy BIOSes.

This sub-forum is about installing XP from, not on USB. Don't be confused.
