As these drivers are delivered without any installers (in order to save space), you will have to install them manually via the device manager.
Don't worry about being (un)able to include these drivers into your personal version of the Windows XP CD due too big size of the uncompressed package content. If you use nLite to build your personal compilation of the Windows XP CD, nLite will fit only compressed versions of these drivers into your ISO. So it will take only about 20 MB of space to integrate these drivers to your personal version of the Windows XP CD!
You're wondering why there are included two different versions of drivers for the graphics adapter? Usually it's best to use the most actual version of a driver. But as I couldn't decide myself which driver is best*) (the GPU chipset by itself is quite old by now) and as there are reported some problems about the newer IEGD-driver series, I decided to include both of them. Please try out yourself, which driver fits your needs best.
Sometimes it would be much easier if Windows could recognize your build-in SD card reader as a local (~fixed) instead of a removable drive. This driver is based on the work of the 'Hitachi Global Storage Technologies' company which they issued for the same purpose regarding their 'Microdrive' called CF-sized hard disks. Choosing the 'USB2.0 CardReader SD0 USB Device' at the 'disks' section of the device manager and updating the according drivers will solve a lot (but not all) problems. Be assured you will be still able to (un)mount your inserted SD card via the system tray icon without any problems.
