slipstream help

I have a new computer which i am trying to install windows xp pro onto. The problem is, i have a sata hard drive and no floppy drive. That means that i have to slipstream the sata drivers on a boot disk. I know how to slipstream, i just dont know what to slipstream. I have an ASUS a8v deluxe mobo, and i am not sure what drivers i will need. I think i am going to need Ulsata and viasraid, but i am not sure. Can someone please tell what i am supposed to slipstream?

This is one I'd solve by...

Installing a diskette drive. Such are under 10 bucks and given the cost of time I'd give the customer a choice of a 10 buck floppy drive or hundreds in tech time charges.

Did you try putting such on a CD?

This is not an offer to slipstream it. That's something for you to dance on the supplier's head why they didn't give you a CD version.

kibitzer31, You could have been up and running by now,
if you had a floppy drive. If you don't want to buy one, borrow one from another pc, a friend, or family member. Get the bootdisk from
No need for all the trouble that your going through.
Best of Luck
