If he is installing XP, a floppy is the only way he is going to be able to install SATA drivers during the initial installation. It is a limitation of the OS. The engineers at M$ only programmed additional drivers to be loaded from a floppy during the initial setup.
There is another option. You can slipstream
the drivers into the XP install disk.
edit: Attached are the NVIDIA SATA drivers if you need them
. Put them on a floppy and load them from a USB floppy drive by pressing F6 to load 3rd party drivers. It will show at the bottom of the blue screen when XP sltarts to load.
or you can slipstream them into the XP installation disk.
