Never heard of such a case. What exactly happens?
Dell's website doesn't want to let me download and save drivers, it wantsa to install them
What drivers are missing?

Was it some recovery CD, or full version of Windows XP?
I used the windows xp disc that I received with my computer
Are you saying, you're using some Nintendo device to browse the web?
I'm on my Wii browser right now
You better visit a friend and download those drivers fro regular computer and put them on USB stick.
Just enter your Dell tag number and all drivers should be there.

Apparently, once you pick one or the other, it doesn't let you go back and try the other option (at least, not easily)
I think I know what he's going through, I avoid Dell's site for this very problem and just go else where like softpedia or download.com (CNET). Nodevice.com works fairly nice too... I'll let you takeover from there... just wanted to chime in, Dell's site is weird about it... I don't know how else to explain it.
EDIT: P.S. And when you choose to download via Dell Download Manager, it must install .NET Framework first which takes FOREVER AND A DAY.

yep...that is the best way...while your there grab ALL the drivers for your system...burn them to a cd...
Dell lets you search by service tag, it should be able to help a bit with that, right?
that way if you ever need them in the future you will avoid the hassle of ever having to get them again

SM BUS Controller is related to your motherboards chipset. Go to Dell's site and download and install the "chipset" driver for your system. That should do the trick.
