Shouldn't you be able to install the drivers from the CD/DVD/ROM drive?

No mate,

SATA drivers are not included with Windows XP, they have to be installed from a floppy when windows asks you to press F6 (I think) to install any third party drivers for raid.

It must be from a floppy, I am sure the new Vista will eradicate this problem but for now we are stuck with it.

I wondered if you could put them onto a CD-R and add them that way?

No, I tried years ago when SATA first came out, I built an old 754 3400 system with one of the very first SATA drives and I did not include a floppy in the build.

I had to order a floppy after days of trying to figure it out.
