I just found out that you can Slipstream the SATA Drivers into a Windows XP CD. And that way you would not need a floppy when Installing SATA Drives on a VIA Board. Great Idea! Only problem now is How do I do it?

I found out about it here http://www.ozzu.com/ftopic28824.html

Yeah, I've done this, it's a great move. I built my machine without a floppy drive (I hate the little blighters and any excuse to get rid of them is good as far as I'm concerned) and using this mechanism XP just installs onto an SATA drive from CD, no messing about.

Can't remember where I found the instructions ... I think they were linked to from nforcershq.net forums.
