WinXP Pro on my ML310 box???

I've been trying without any success to locate a WinXP Pro driver for my P600 Smart Array SAS/SATA controller that I need far the P6 "3rd party" set-up. "Assuming they do exist".
My system is the HP Proliant ML310 G3
2x15000 36GB SCSI Hard Drives (Logical Disk 1)
1x7200 160GB SATA Hard Drive (Logical Disk 2)
Both set to Raid O.
I'd appreciate it if anyone can help with their experience / feedback as to this little problem of mine.

Thanks in advance.
Ross

PS I have installed Win2K Advanced Server on the box earlier with no problems at all :-)

Hello Ross,

Win Xp Pro is a client OS and is not tested on servers.
If Xp Pro is a mandatory requirement try drivers for Win 2k,however not too sure if it would work.

Hi, thanks for your prompt reply Sandeep, but I have read feedback over the last couple of months since aquiring the server that people have stated that it is doable under WinXP Pro; the exact details were sketchy though...
My first attempt, after being unable to find XP drivers was to use the Server 2000 drivers; which initially was accepted and recognised by the XP install but 3 mins later I received "unable to find hpcisss2.sys press F2 to reboot, installation failed"....
Anybody any ideas???
Thanks in advance Ross
