    I hope I am understanding your question. If I am telling you something you already know, I appologize.

    Every piece of hardware in a computer needs a "driver" so your system knows how to use that piece of hardware. Without a driver, windows does not know how to use the hardware.

    So in order to use IDE devices (cdrom, hard drives etc), you need the IDE drivers.
    If you use a LAN interface, you need lan drivers
    If you use Raid, you need the drivers...etc.

    I hope this answers your question!
