    Crazy Windows. I've never been advised to defrag after installing drivers (because last time I defragged XP it took about 8 hours)

    OS X's installer usually takes care of this for you, IIRC when it says "Optimising System Performance". You can get 3rd party defragmentation utilities for the Mac, but I've never needed to use one before.

    Well that driver won't work with standard windows xp pro, or windows xp home...only with windows xp x64 edition.
