Thank you; I hope you won't regret that generous offer...

The XP Home installed fine on my new computer (SATA)- which previously had Vista installed - and the motherboard I have bought for the second machine supports SATA; I presume that the SATA drivers will be on the CD that should come with the motherboard? If they aren't, then where do I find them?

Thanks again and also in advance!
