Hi all,
i heard that Windows XP won't support any fibre channel HBA card.

Is that true? What does that mean? No HBA card will work on Windows XP or
Windows Xp does not have any drivers for them preinstalled?

Drivers for a HBA card are obtainable from the HBA card
manufacturer's web site.

Hi Carey,
thanks for your support.

I'm wondering why i don't find any fibre channel hba in the Tested Product
List in the Windows Marketplace for Windows XP, while there are for Windows
2000. What does that mean?

I had a look here:
