    Alright,
    I know that there is a way to get the boot disks from my Windows XP home edition disk. It says to:

    Copy all the files from \VIA\VIASATA\DriverDisk to floppy diskette

    I load in the OS disk and browse it, but I can't find that file anywhere. So I decided to download the boot disks off of the Microsoft site. It says that I need 6 boot disks, but when I begin the download it fills up the first disk and refuses to give me instructions to put in the next disk.

    I use the Adobe Download Manager, but I also tried the standard download manager from Internet Explorer.

    Please help.
