The bootable XP cd you have will work - You need to first reinstall the Operating System(XP), then download and install drivers for the devices(Such as touchpad, wireless, etc.)
The device drivers are all available from Acer's support site; If the Network Card driver isn't installed after the windows XP installation, you will need to use a different computer to download the drivers, and transfer them to your laptop using some sort of removable media - USB Flash drive, portable hard drive, memory card, etc.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I had the exact same problem after upgrading to windows 7 32 bit Home Premium on my Acer 3680 series laptop. After researching the problem at both the Acer site and the touchpad manufacturer's site, I discovered that sometimes Windows 7 doesn't support all features of older touchpads and there is no solution for this problem (which I like, anyway).
The drivers for the original touchpad are not always supported by Windows 7, which say, for instance, worked in Vista.
I tried emulation mode, etc., but the scroll buttons didn't work after updating to windows 7.
So, I just gave up and tried to adapt to the new operating system/touchpad function.
There is a button to turn on and off the touch pad. Is there a button on your keyboard that has the letters FN on it? if so hold that down and see what comes up. If not search for any kind of switch near your touch pad or that is on the keyboard that is not a normal typing key.
you may need to reinstall the drivers for keyboard and touch pad, if you still have the drivers cd on hand look for these two important drivers, since you have the new xp installed all drivers have been erased.
hope this helps
Hello, Your recovery disks must be scratched or files are corrupted. Since you have successfully installed XP Pro, why not stay with it as it's better than Home? If you have a restoration partition on your C drive, you may be able to revert to your original configuration from it. And if you insist on XP Home or only have a valid product key for home, you can borrow a disk from anyone who has a good copy. I hope this helps.
