I got this T42 several years ago without a hard drive - I put one in and've been using Linux successfully for several years. Well I finally got a legal copy of Windows XP but it's buggy because that XP does not have the right drivers. I got the ethernet and the wireless to work but the scrolly thing on the touchpad does not work and there are other things, I'm sure.
Anyway, is there a way to just get ALL of the drivers on one disk and install them all at once rather than figuring out what's not working one by one?

Welcome to the forum!
You could download Lenovo's System Update, which should find all the drivers.
Personally, I'm more in favour of downloading drivers one by one, and choosing what I really need on the machine...
What's the 7-character model number of that T42, 237?-???

You have two possibilities of driver - installation:
1. Automatized driver installation:
For ethernet connection install the Ethernet driver
Run System Update and select the drivers and tools you wish to install.
2. Manual driver installation:
You will find all drivers here, if you prefer manual driver installation.
Identify your wireless network driver here, if unknown.
Install the drivers in the following sequence after installing Service Pack 3:
