Floppies? Bah!

The drivers for my new RAID controller are on floppies.

My computer does not have a floppy drive.


(You're supposed to feed it the floppies when you're installing Windows, so just downloading the drivers doesn't actually help very much. How it can then find the drivers when it needs the drivers to access the hard disk which contains the drivers is one of those unanswered questions.)

1 Take the contents of the flopp(y)(ies) and burn them to a CD-ROM on another computer. Then you can use that CD-ROM to install the drivers during the windows install. You'd think the vendors would just start providing drivers on CD, since more PCs are starting to not come with floppy drives...
