    q1. Yes, VMware includes it's own drivers for most guest OS's and will 1-click install them for you. Most other virtualization software will do that, as well. The last VMware that you can install on a windows XP HOST is 10.0.7 (but you can install an XP GUEST on literally anything)

    q2. website driverpack.io I have never seen a piece of hardware that it didn't find and install a driver for, and I'm talking hundreds of cards. and it's all automatic more or less, after you download the packs and run them.

    q3. there's no question here lol, I'm glad microsoft gave us the XP mode in win7, but I've never used it. I've used to VMware, so that's what I always use on all computers.

    q4. Oh yeah, that dual-core Dell is overkill power to run Windows XP. Remember, XP minimum requirements are something like a meesly Pentium 200mhz (0.2ghz), and 64mb (0.06gb) of memory (RAM) but you really want 128mb haha.
