    well you might have to wait longer than an hour to get a response. everyone does not sit around hitting refresh all day long to see what threads have been started. but anyways, it should have came with a instal disc. put that in ur dvd-drive, and open up the folder that says like VIA or VT6241 and instal the driver for it. that should solve your problem. and no you do not have to have a HD hooked up to it. but you can use the IDE port for a dvd drive if you wish.
