    They should be on the CD. Under something like drivers\sata.

    They will be found on your Driver CD. There will be two folders, one for RAID and one non-RAID. You'll want the non-RAID I assume. There will be 4-10 files in that folder. Copy them to a blank floppy (not in a folder). When you start the Windows XP install it will ask you to hit F6 to install additional drivers. hit F6. eventually it will ask you if you have additional drivers (just follow it's prompts)and that's when it will ask you to insert the floppy. Install should proceed without problems....

    If you have no floppy drive you'll have to borrow one and temporarily hook it up, otherwise you'll have to slipstream the SATA drivers into your XP CD.
