It's okay, I'm just not that good with words. Yes, I've done the whole nlite driver insertion as outlined by a site linked from this one. (http://tx2500z.googlepages.com/) with the tablet edition as well as the pro editions with sp1 and sp2. As for the floppy with the drivers. I needed them when converting my gateway from vista to xp. I originally installed the SATA drivers via the floppy. It has several possibilities to install, I think it was labeled as the storage controller drivers. Like ACHI and RAID settings. But it requires the windows installer to load first and ask if you want to install thirdparty raid or scsi drivers; which is the part I cannot get to.
