Default Need drivers for a pc with xp, but......

The computer I'm installing drivers for is not the computer I'm using to get online with. I'm getting online using a computer that doesn't need drivers, the one that does can't connect to the internet.

My problem is that Driver Guide makes you install 925kb install files that require internet access to run. Does this mean that there is no way to download the drivers on this computer, then transfer the drivers to my other computer?

I'm afraid to run the install files on this computer in the fear that it will install the drivers before it downloads them. Installing improper drivers on this PC could be a disaster especially when it doesn't need them.

The only way to do it is to download the driver using a computer already connected to the Internet, and then transfer the driver over to the disabled computer using either jump drive, cd, etc.

If there's no way to download it without installing the EXE file, then just uninstall the exe after the download. I think I read where it can be easily uninstalled.

I did this on my laptop, but I'm not sure what the exe will do after I click it. I'm assuming it will access the driver online but I'm unsure if it will install the drivers or download them first.

If it downloads them I can transfer the downloaded drivers easily to the other computer, but if it installs them on this system I could end up with a screwed up laptop with improper drivers.
