    ok well i bought a lapton a toshiba satellite a300. i put fedora 9 on it. now i with to put xp on it. i have been told that i need to use a sata driver upon booting xp. i know how to boot the driver and the boot disk my problem is obtaining the driver. i have no idea where to find it. i looked at the drive and it says that it is a toshiba sata drive. i have looked on google but that turned up nothing but useless tutorials, that do not supply a drive nor a link to a site where i can obtain one. so could some one please provide me with some place i can find one. if more info is need needed please post what you need to know and i will get back to you with the info as quickly as possible.

    yeah i actually figured this one out a while ago and never really got around to posting the solution. well as you said i went into the bios and changed sata from disabled to compatibility. and that fixed it. kinda a dumb thing... and i stumbled upon the fix by complete fluke.
