X200 Upgrade to XP - Need Application CDs

I bought five X200s with Vista Basic (because it was cheaper).  My company has licenses for XP and I want to "upgrade" these to XP.  I made the set of Product Recovery CDs before I loaded XP to the laptop.  Now that I have the base XP image on the laptop, I want to load the drivers & apps, but the Recovery CDs are for Vista and they don't work.  How do I get the apps loaded onto the XP laptop?

The WIN DVD link you provided is only an upgrade for existing installations.  Where can I download the program?

And we're back...
