I've looked around and I'm having a hard time finding good info on this. I've looked up stuff like slipstreaming SATA drivers into the windows disc, but I don't think I'm doing it right. I got the correct SATA drivers from gateways website. I'm pretty sure this system just uses the intel SATA Chipset. Any way if anyone could help me install XP on my Gateway C-141XL laptop without having a floppy disc I'd really appreciate it. Thanks

Scratch that last post. I can install XP and I added all the drivers I could get off gateways web site to the install CD using nliteos, but when I start the machine up it acts weird. I can't see my wireless or NIC and I can't get IE to work at all. Not really sure what else to do here aside from trying to find a cheap USB floppy drive. Anyone have any idea?
