Can anyone tell me how to put the SATA drivers for my motherboard (gigabyte p35-ds4) onto a floppy disk to use when I install windows xp?

99% of cases do a straight copy by extracting the files from the ZIP file to a freshly-formatted floppy.
On occasion a separate setup program provided with the download will do it instead but this is the exception rather than the rule.

Ok, well I downloaded the SATA drivers from the gigabyte website and copied them on to a formatted floppy but I get the error "the file txtsetup.oem could not be found".....what does that mean?

Means what it says. Seriously :)

All files must be in the root of the floppy - not in any sub folders.
