Problem: Re-install XP on SATA drive

Hello .. new here. I need to re-install a fresh XP on my system. I read the info about hitting F6 at boot to install third party drivers for SATA HD. My system does not have a floppy to copy those drivers to while the Windows XP CD is in the drive. Is there another way for me to do this?

When I first tries to do setup from booting from the XP CD the screen saying that Windows could not detect a hard drive surprised me, as I have only setup systems with EIDE drives so was unfamiliar with the process. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks .. Batelboy
