Additional Notes

This driver was hidden in the nForce 4 Ultra Driver package from nvidia.com and works on my nForce 2 Ultra Raid Controller. The IDE driver that came with the nForce 1/2/3 dowload package from nvidia.com would NOT work making the windows splash screen for Windows XP SP2 keep loading indefinitely. This driver from the nforce 4 package works and says "nforce 2 ATA controller" and windows doesn't give me a horrified error of incompatibility. Go figure nvidia and keeping drivers together :-) I basically figured this out by running the driver setup for nforce 4 on my nforce 2; all drivers that installed well worked. Use the others at your own risk as i don't know if they were actually installed; i only know this one was different from the nforce 2 package because the one from nforce 2
