Have you tried to just skip the F6 option and install XP?

You can get the drivers for your machine from Dell:

The correct way is how Makai has suggested.

I don't doubt that the information provided by Makai is correct, I just thought that if vincecr is going to install XP, he might need some other drivers.
I'm curious as to how you know that vincecr's computer doesn't have a Samsung drive. I tried looking for his system configuration but couldn't find anything more that his OS. I'm new here and still trying to find my way around. Maybe I was looking in the wrong place for it. Thanks.

Once the drives are in the system then the bios must be adjusted to show the SATA drive as the primary bootable drive.
Now in Vista that could be a different story.
Sata has become the industry standard and most new MOBO's only have one IDE controller on them. Most builders are using SATA drives instead of IDE drives now due to the speed increase along with the capacity of the SATA drives being larger then IDE.
