EPAT External ATAPI Adapter Driver (upgrading to win2000 from Win98)

Hi, hope you can help me on this. I'm upgrading to Win2000. Have a HP Colorado 15gb external drive. Looks like I need a new driver from the message win2000 setup setup is giving me (see subject line. Don't know where to get this. Any thoughts would be very appreciated?

Thank very much - Bob

Hi Folks, here is the latest ..

The netbios was at the appropropriate rev level. Using 8.1 of the colorado software. I did successfully install the w2k drivers for Colorado.

AfterI flashed bios and installed the w2k drivers I re-attempted the win2000 upgrade. Halfway thought I came up with an error indicating a memory fault. Instructions where to look and disable memory caching if being used. No other option at this point but to reboot. When it returned to startup I had 2 options for booting to windows 98 (not one for 98 and one for 2000 setup). Now the w2k upgrade disk won't allow an upgrade because it things there are already 2 copies of the OS on the disk - but both are win98.

Any thoughts - I'm sensing I'm in nomans lands
