    xp should automatically get the driver for you
    go to control panel,
    system properties,
    device manager
    right click sound should be a yellow question mark
    click on search for driver( i think thats what it says)

    Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device. There may not be a sound device installed on your computer, it may be in use by another program, or it may not be functioning properly.

    This is the pop up I get.

    right on no worries
    now do the same thing to all the rest of the yellow question mark icons in device manager
    this will install all the drivers for those devices and will help your computer run faster
