thanks purewaveform, but i dont want the drivers on an xp installation disk, i want them on a disk on there own that will auto install them the moment i bash the disk in, is it possible? i have gleaned some info from the link you provided, such as the drivers folder and the numbered driver folders in it ..eg:- 000_chpset .....and so on, but then it goes on about where to put this folder...xpcd\oems\.......and so on. this is not what i am looking for im afraid........unless im missing something?, which is quite probable . any more help would be very gratefull. thanx.
