That metal plate is supposed to be there and mine gets hot rarely. Your fan doesn't switch on because it's shot.
I posted this solution on a c510/c610 with the fan on maximum speed.

The vents on the side are sufficient - but the fan should run when you turn it on. If the fan is broken or worn out, your computer will overheat and crash - fans can be replaced but a technician or service shop would need to do it, it's not easy to get laptops open. So, to fully answer your question, there is not supposed to be a heat vent on the bottom. But the fan should probably be running when you turn it on. If the seller of the laptop didn't mention a broken fan you might want to contact them and ask if they know.

I av a dell latitude c500/600 and need the usb driver its running on xp cheers

All drivers for XP in the C600/C500 should be native to Windows XP Dell never shipped XP on that model so they never had any drivers for XP.
If you have issue with USB devices on that model, try booting to the safe mode, remove the USB devices in Device Manager, then reboot in normal mode and let them re-detect.
