Has anyone here downgraded from Vista to XP.
Can I do it via an internet download?

Contact the manufacturer of your laptops. Most of them have the
necessary preload kits for Windows XP that you can get for a small
fee. The comments made by Walden/Terry still apply, you'll need to
have a business or ultimate version of Vista or an appropriate
licensing contract.

Please note that many laptop manufacturers do not support running XP
on every machine they have - you might run into troubles with not
having the necessary drivers.

If you do not use a preload kit supplied by the manufacturers, prepare
to deal with having to install a mass storage driver on your own. For
this you'll either need an USB Floppy drive or remaster the Windows XP
