need help cant get anything to work

I am having problems with installing windows 64x pro on my new sata drives. I have a 36 gig sata rapter and a 250 gig WD sata. Im running a AMD 64bit 4000+ on a gigabyte board, Ga-K8NXP-Sli, 2 gigs of memory and a ega 7800 gt graphics card. The drivers i downloaded from gigabyte's website, for windows 64x pro os, are too big to fit on a floppy. What do I do? I am brand new to raid and sata. My mobo as SATA II connections controlled by gforce4 sli, and SATA connections controlled by Sil3114. I dont know which one to use and i just want the fastest and best config for my system. PLEASE HELP FAST really want to run my new graphics card to see if it was really worth the money.

Obviously the contents of that file are too big to put on a floppy. The only thing you need to have on your floppy are the following files (all located inside the zip file you've downloaded):
  • Si3112r.inf
  • Si3112r.mpd
  • Si3112r.sys
  • SIISUPP.VXD
  • SIWinAcc.sys
  • TxtSetup.oem
With these files on a floppy, once loaded at the beginning of the XP install procedure, it will find your SATA HDD & offer you the option to install XP on that drive.
I've looked on my original mother-board (A7N8X) CD, I've downloaded the drivers from ASUS, but I cant find SIWinAcc.sys on either, I cant find it on my hard drive either. Is it necessary, I am going to do a re-installation of XP shortly.

I have just downloaded the latest version on the Asus website & indeed that file is no longer included in the driver's zip archive. I would thus think it's not necessary to have it during the install process.

If the drivers are available, you should find them at the manufacturer's website, in this case Toshiba. You are not looking for a driver for a particular brand hard drive but for the SATA controller on the motherboard.
 
no need for sata drivers just go ahead wiht xp installation and dont press f6 as xp will take default drivers, later you can install drivers,
if its not insatlling please send me the exact maasege you are getting
