When XP Setup prompts you for a RAID driver, you will need that CD, contact the Manufacturer, and get another CD. As for Creative, just use the AutoUpdate tool @ http://us.creative.com/

As I recall from my KT-7 mobo, you can download the drivers from Abit as Grinler says. You won't have to install the RAID drivers unless you plan on using the RAID feature.

You should be able to get the Creative Sound Blaster drivers at: http://us.creative.com/support/downloads/
