First you'll need to know what Intel chipset the board has. Search for the Gateway model number or get a part number off the board...

Then search the intel download website for a "Floppy Configuration Utility" for that chipset. Set up the floppy and hit F6 during install...

This is assuming you have a floppy on the machine. If not it's possible to slipstream sata drivers into an xp install cd, I use nLite which is pretty foolproof. There are numerous guides on how to achieve this... google is your friend :D  I'm sure there are some here on Tom's forums too...
