Hello, I just bought a GA-M68MT-S2 Gigabyte motherboard. My problem is I have a IDE controller card and i cannot install the OS because I cannot install the drivers for the Controller card. The reason for this is, there is no Floppy drive controller. Can anybody help me please.

Easy fix -- stop using the IDE controller card. If you have an IDE hard drive or optical drive, buy SATA versions instead. Or, return the mainboard you have and buy one that has a built-in IDE port. They are getting more and more rare, so you're better off getting SATA drives.
