One other thing that was just brought up on another thread:
Some motherboards support an IDE mode for SATA drives. The performance might be slightly less, but if you just want it to work see if your BIOS has an IDE mode for SATA drives.
Thanks for the response and your previous help. This weekend I made a slipstreamed XP/SATA drivers disk as you had mentioned and everything loaded up just fine.
Thanks again for your help..
