Windows XP? If so it should just recognize the new hardware and go to the internet to get the drivers.

Make sure you dedicate it either as a slave or master. There should be a jumper in the back. I would set it as slave so it doesn't screw up the machine if you have the cable hooked up to your hard drive.

if it comes with the computer, i'm not gonna turn it down, but if its separate, i dont see the point in wasting money on it.
