Unless I'm totally not understanding your question, no, there is no way to do this, nor is there any reason to. I highly doubt that Microsoft would include any unsigned device drivers on the Windows XP disk.

As far as your problem, try removing (or disabling through BIOS if integrated on motherboard) your audio equipment. Install Windows. After you've got Windows installed, reinstall (or enable) your audio equipment and use the current version of the hardware manufacturer's drivers when promped.
