Default Video drivers for Win XP?

My friend is running Win XP and Win. 7 on the same hard drive. Will the 260 series Nvidia drivers work on XP? Any special way to install drivers on two operating versions? I just want to check before I get into it with him. Thanks all.

Why not just go to the nvidia site and see if they have the drivers? Quicker than waiting for a response from here.

Windows XP drivers are different from Windows 7. Just make sure you download the proper one for each OS from the NVIDIA site and you should be good to go.

DO NOT use the same driver package on both as it won't work. And if it does, you'll probably have a bunch of problems.
