Default SATA Drivers


I got this motherboard:
And a 150 GB Raptor. If you read the reviews you will see that you need to install SATA drivers via floppy. I have no idea how to do this. I know you have to press F6 and stuff, but I don't know where to get the drivers and how to put them on a floppy to make them work at installation. I looked everywhere for the sata drivers and I really need help.

I have a floppy drive though so I don't want to go through the trouble of slipstreaming when it is said you can use a foppy. If know one can tell me how though I guess I will have to try and slipstrem.

Why would you need SATA drivers, my computer didn't come with them and my SATA barracuda works fine...
