I have an Asus P3F-B motherboard with a Maxtor hard drive controller for
Ultra 100 ATA. I run Win XP Pro. I am trying to find a hard drive
controller that does not use the "F6" drivers. Is there such an animal?

Thanks in advance for the help.

You can make a slip streamed disk like Byron said,
Which would be the easiest thing to do. If that doesn't
work you could follow this guide.

Its explains how to build an unattened CD with
all your drivers included.

I believe that the maxtor ata controller card is actually made by promise.
xp already has drivers built in for the promise ata pci controller card as I
use one myself without having to install any drivers.
cheers

Correct me if I am wrong:

you are trying to boot from a hard drive connected to a PCI ATA-100 card.
Right??

What you may need to do (without going to the trouble of using a driver
floppy (F6) all the time) is make yourself a XP Service pack 2 install CD
(slipstreamed) .

I have found it works really well with my SATA boot drive, which normally
requires a driver disc.

Basically all you need to do is get a copy of XP service pack 2, copy all
the files off your WinXP install disc to a directory on your computer, get
the service pack to update files in the directory, and burn the files back
onto a CD. Full step-by-step instructions can be found at
http://www.windows-help.net/WindowsXP/winxp-sp2-bootcd....

Hope this helps - it really made my life easier.
