Default Win xp and cd-rom drive...

Does windows xp automatically recognize a cd drive when I first power up a newly built comp?
Or do I need the driver for the cd rom?

windows usually installs generic drivers for optical drives when it installs. so it will pick it up..

that or it will tell you that new hard ware was found and let you use the wizzard to install the generic drivers, but it usually picks it up..
