Trying to install XP... but...

Have a 3 year old computer that has SATA ports but its mainly IDE. It wont let me change it to primary or anything in the BIOS. So I'm being told that when I'm installing windows I need to hit F6 when it comes up to install raid shit. I do that but I don't have a floppy. Anyone know where I can download the program? Fucking shit is annoying.

Ok, it still wants me to find the drive to put in there which is fine. I just don't know where to get it. Its a Seagate Barracuda 80g drive and I looked all over the download pages on their site and haven't found shit.

Yep. Figure out what SATA drivers came for your motherboard, then put them on a floppy, boot the install cd, press f6, load the drivers. And it should find your other drive
