Will Windows Vista drivers work in build 5219 or will some XP, because I wanna get DWM on my laptop.

Thanks :)

try both and see what works, though if its not for beta purposes do windows 7 (vista drivers) much better.

Try both, sometimes you'l need XP drivers, sometimes Vista.
Its always a good idea to keep both XP and Vista drivers handy.

The best option is to see if you can get Vista Beta drivers from this era. This is about the time some started getting released iirc.

Well, hunting the web, I've so far found ATi Drivers for Beta 1, 5270, 5308 and the Public Builds.
Can't find a working Beta 1 Driver, but there is a working 5270 Driver here:

Catalyst for Vista Build 5270

Edit: Finally found a Beta 1 Driver link that works.

ATi Display Driver for Windows Vista Beta 1

Remember though, these only support up to X850, the top card released at the time. If you have an x1xxx or newer, you'll have to try XP or Vista Drivers.
