install xp on a dell inspiron 1525?

This laptop came preinstalled with Vista, which I hate.

I'd like to install XP on it. Does anyone have any experience with this? Can anyone please point me to a guide? I've heard it can be a bit complicated. Is that true? As far as I know, you have to be sure that you have all of the drivers for XP in advance.

I'd appreciate any help.

Your computer needs downgrade rights to do this. A lot of the drivers for that system are probably proprietary and have no xp drivers available specifically for the items
