Default BYOC Guides?

My friend just got his parts for his 1st build ever, and he needs a couple links to some in-depth RECENT computer building guides, as he is kind of clueless.

Can anyone give me some links? TY!

Let me guess, "Windows couldn't find your SATA HDD during installation?"

Nice hi-jack guys, and why does everyone have that same problem with SATA? I think I'll just stick to my ATA/133

Oh, no way does everyone else have the same problem as me, I seem to invent new, unheard of problems, without even trying.

Sata drives seem to be a unversal problem between motherboards that don't come with floppy driver disks, XP only recognizing them after SP2 versions, and yet the performance is so much smoother, quieter and faster once you jump through the "hoops"
