Which of these SATA drivers do I need?

Hey guys,
Im trying to reinstall windowsXP home on my computer but I have a SATA hd and windows does not find it when trying to install. I have found out how to make a windowsxp cd with added SATA drivers but have no clue on which files to include...
I hope someone can help me out and tell me which is the right one to dl...
I have a old Asus A8V Deluxe motherboard.

This one falls under the RAID tab of the dl page.

The next two fall under the IDE tab on the same page of the motherboard, which is what confuses me.

More about which sata drivers need
  1. Just set the Sata controller to ide mode which is normal and there won't be any need for any drivers. Also some early sata ports are sata 1 mode not sata 2, if this is the case the harddrive may need a jumper which places it in sata one mode instead of sata 2 also.
    If you don't have the manual go to Asus web site and download so you can determine this.
