what if i dont want to press f6 during a windows install
I would like to know how to add my third party scsi drivers to be loaded by my install disk. My machine does not normaly have a floppy drive and I would like to install xp without opening the case again. Any help would be appreciated.

If you don't want to press F6 AND load third party drivers maybe you should pick a different OS. If Windows doesn't have support for the thing you're trying to install drivers for then you're just going to have live with pressing that button, or...
You can haxxor teh Windowz XP installation CD and haxx0r teh dr1v3r5 into teh K3rn3l
...Seriously this is JUST because you don't want to press a button?

slipstream the drivers into your XP install CD.. sofware .try. nlite.. a good start.. have a good read..
MS also have info on slipstreaming ... I don't have the links to hand and too busy to search.. sry ..google it?

nLite is a good solution IMHO.
You can slipstream the latest service pack as well as your drivers

Just to comment on what Nihil said:
That's a VERY good idea. Most Windows machines don't last to long on the net before something happens. You probably don't have time to even download all those updates and reboot for all of them before something tries to grab your box.
It's like putting a Redneck cop in the middle of Detroit with a huge badge and no gun.
Or I can maybe simplify this further:
Imagine your computer getting a prostate exam by Dr Captain Hook.
I've done fresh installs and I generally have at LEAST a hardware firewall blocking it to get updates installed. I also have SP2 on CD.

Any idiot would know to disable the upnp and dcom services.

(Obviously I'm kidding if I actually need to point that out, to the others, I know YOU know that).

I am sorry but I have been a computer tech for 6 years and I have never seen such a thing happen. I am not sure where you get your information from.
