Default Changing SATA drives

I have an Intel D875PBZ mobo with WinXP Home and currently have a SATA Seagate drive. I want to swap it for a WD SATA Raptor drive. Since the original drive is SATA, do I have to reload or download different drivers for the Raptor to be recognized by the mobo or is it just a matter of hooking up the Raptor and installing the opsys and anything else I want on it?
