There was an article on the frontpage that went through creating a floppy disk with the nVRAID drivers as part of the installation of XP. You might want to take a look at that. If you're running a 64bit OS, make sure you get the 64bit drivers.

That's ok! From memory, the board has two sets of SATA connections - two at the bottom, and four on the side. Those two sets are driven by different chips, and can't be combined for RAID.

The four on the side are the nVRAID SATA ports, which are probably your best bet.

if not using raid, but Nvidia sata, you don't need to load any drivers & F6. Just boot from XP Cd & go.
