Emachines M5309 XP Drivers

A customer needed drivers for their Emachines M5309, no problem I thought. Wrong!  Gateway or Acer or whoever owns Emachines these days hasn't maintained the drivers for this particular model.  By that I mean they offer four drivers, only one of those is applicable to the machine, and that one is not necessary to install.  Fortunately there are only three drivers that aren't native to XP.  Below are links to these drivers.

Radeon 320m IGP (Omega 2.6.75a)

With these three drivers you should have no more ! icons in the device manager.  There are a couple of other drivers I found that may be helpful.
