Can't load SCSI controller for W2K

Hi,

Got a box here with 2 SCSI hard drives, runs NT 4 fine. Want to start from scratch and load W2K Professional.

Downloaded CP000768.exe "32 bit scsi controller for W2K", created diskette, boot from cdrom, f6, s when prompted, put in diskette created, and I'm not sure what controller card I have so I try selecting each one individually from the list. Each one responds:
File \cpq32fs2.sys cause an unexpected error 1038 at line 1211 in d:\nt\private\ntos\boot\setup\oemdisk.c.

So do I need to download a different file or what? Any idea to figure out which card I have? This is an old box, 166Mhz.

Thanks,
Brian

Re: Can't load SCSI controller for W2K

Unfortunately this has not resolved the problem. After f6,s & inserting disk 2 I am now receiving the following - Line 73 of the INF file is invalid.

Any suggestions as to what this problem may be please?
