Could be something wrong with the disk. Download the drivers off of the abit website and put them on a different floppy.

Make sure your floppy drive is plugged incorrectly and is correctly identified in the bios. Make sure you didnt unplug the power cable by accident while attaching the raptor. Unless your positive your overclock is 9999% stable bring it back down to stock speed while installing.

the drivers need to be in the root directory on the disk. i bet that is the problem. you need to locate the winxp versions and put them on another disk and use that. windows can't browse directories in the setup like you can in windows. it just looks in the root directory on the a: drive :)

if you look on the disk, the drivers will probably be located in a directory like a:\drivers\winxp\ or something like that...

I have used the drivers off of the disk that came with my nf7-s and did not need to copy them onto a different disk. Either something is wrong with the disk or your drive. Its one of the reasons I hate floppys though. They sit around getting all kinds of garbage in them then when you need em they don't work...
