Apologies, but I'm still confuzzed on these sata controllers

    I downloaded the the files for the sata controllers at MSI's support
    site( the one for nvidia and the other for Silicon Image 3132), but
    being a newbie I'm not sure of the install procedure. The instructions
    refer to a floppy and F6 at reboot. Is this for an OS fresh install?
    or do I do this despite XP has been up and running. (I know I need
    these drivers because Device Manager has the yellow exclamaion and are
    currently using windows drivers). Also, are the SI 3132 drivers for an
    additional piece of hardware that must be added or is it already
    imbedded in my P4N Diamond? Again, there are a total of 6 sata ports
    on my board, 5&6 are colored differently and I would like to get a 5th
    drive(sata) up and running. T(very much)IA.

    And heck, while I'm at it, I've another head scratcher. The onboard
    audio is audigy live. On my volume control the bass and treble are
    grayed out(off). I've uninstalled and reinstalled drivers to no avail.
    Any thoughts?

    Since Windows is already loaded, you can go to Device Manager,
    right-click on the device with the yellow, choose Update Driver
    and tell it you have the disk. Point it to the floppy drive and it should
    update itself. You may have to reboot afterward but if not, you're
    done. The yellow should be gone.
