After reformatting a hard drive for my parents and loading Windows XP Home on it, I came across a problem. There were no drivers installed for the video card, ethernet controller, and several other things.
This was a problem. The screen resolution was stuck @ 800x600 and I couldn't get on the internet to download the drivers. Luckily I brought my laptop with me so I could begin the grueling search for drivers.
What I thought would be a tough task ended up not being tough at all thanks to NoDevice.com. NoDevice.com is a very useful site for finding drivers by either category (motherboard, usb, camcorder, etc.) or company (dell, 3com, NEC, etc.). It was as simple as clicking on dell, then finding which dell I had and there was a list off all the drivers I needed. Thank you NoDevice for saving me the time of hunting all of them down.
