Perhaps I should have mentioned that I have a Vista system. I installed a second HDD that I was

going to put XP on. Would you still suggest the same thing? Thank you

An INF file (stands for information) or Setup Information file, is a plain text file used by Microsoft Windows for installation of software and drivers. INF files are most commonly used for installing device drivers for hardware components. Windows includes Express.exe for the creation of INF-based installations. INF files are part of the Windows Setup API.

Windows INF files do not contain installation scripts. The installation procedures are part of a Microsoft Win32 installer application, such as the New Device Wizard and the Add Hardware Wizard , with each INF file acting as a resource.
