U can use rapidshare or megaupload to host the files for free! I have found all the drivers and all of them have worked for me but the wifi...I found a driver with that same name but it still doesn't work, could u post the link here. I also found two audio drivers with the name "R153908.exe" also from sigmatel. So I'll post the link to the one that works here... http://ftp.us.dell.com/audio/R153908.EXE
