Default fresh xp install

Well I finally got stupid and reformatted my Dell Dimension 2350. I am a
newbie so be gentle! When I install Windows XP Pro the hardware drivers
cannot be found for the Ethernet, video etc. Is there a place I can download
these drivers or am I screwed as I did not make one of these infamous
recovery CD's. I guess I got a little hasty in my formatting. Help is
appreciated.

You got a drivers disk with your machine. It
is called "Resource CD. Any updates can then be
downloaded from Dell and/or the makers web sites.

You need to install the Intel Chipset driver utility first. It can be found
on your Dimension Resource CD or downloaded over at www.support.dell.com

Your system should have come with a drivers CD. IMHO, that's the easiest
way to get it working (how will you download the Ethernet drivers,
otherwise). If you don't have it, you can get all the Dell drives from
http://dell.com/support using another system....
