    According to Dell Windows 7 should install most drivers without issue. Anything it has trouble with you should try the Vista drivers. (See this page from Dell for details: http://bit.ly/dcZuKj )

    For best results getting everything to work you should install the 32-bit version of Windows 7.

    You should also run the Windows 7 upgrade advisor first ( http://bit.ly/cVTJ3T ) to test your computer for any issues.
