By the way - Maxie just sent me a link to a tutorial on how to slipstream a Sata driver on an XP installation disk. He must have seen that I was struggling with the answer.

It is too bad that you do not have access to YouTube. Most of my tutorials are videos on YouTube.

Check whether you can access Vimeo - link below. Then I can upload videos there if we need it. The one I linked earlier from YouTube I happen to also have on Vimeo.
