    I have seen many posts on many forums about this exact issue. Each one is a little different from each other. That is why I am posting this. I'm setting up a system for family member and I am using the P4 2.8 ghz Socket T Cpu, the ASUS P5S800-VM motherboard and Maxtor 6Y060M0 60 gb SATA HD. Like everyone else I am trying a clean install of WinXP Pro and since it does not reconize the SATA drive, I will need to hit F6 and install drivers for the SATA drive. Here is the problem, I have no idea what to install when it asks me for the floppy. I went to Maxtor's site they say hey get those drivers from your motherboard company. I go to ASUS and they do not have SATA drivers they have RAID drivers which would be my only logical option but I am not sure. I am not going to be running RAID but all the other drivers from ASUS for that board do not make sense. I was wondering if anyone has found like a universal wonder driver that lets XP reconize the SATA drive at the beginning of the install. I know SP1 supports SATA. I have a disc with SP1 on it, would it be possible to pull a driver for SATA off of the disc??????

    Any advice at all would be really helpful......Thanks in advance.
