drivers

when I install Ubuntu 11.10 will it remove all the drivers that are on through windows xp pro? And then reinstall it's own drivers back (for the ones it removed)under ubuntu 11.10 format.

I am in the grey zone here wheather to install it or leave it alone.Wont do any good to have a laptop with a new OS and not be usable because the new OS wiped out the drivers and the thing wont work.

Thank you for any and all advice and help
