NVIDIA IDE SW Driver Information

The NVIDIA IDE SW driver replaces the ATA drivers (that come with Windows) with
drivers that are optimized for nForce2-based desktop computers.

The NVIDIA IDE SW driver reduces the storage sub-system bottleneck, enabling the
processor and other system level hardware to be more productive and efficient. 

In most cases, the NVIDIA IDE SW driver is not a requirement for your operating
system to work properly. 

nForce2 platform processors can significantly reduce the CPU time required to
retrieve data from and/or store data on your hard disk (or other IDE devices)
using the IDE logic inside nForce2 MCP and nForce2 MCP-T.  


NOTE: 	The NVIDIA IDE SW driver is provided "as-is" to the end-user.

	The NVIDIA IDE SW driver may contain design defects or errors known as
        errata, which may cause the product to deviate from published
        specifications.  Current characterized errata may be available upon request,
        depending upon product.  

	NVIDIA may make changes to specifications, product descriptions, and plans at 
	any time, without notice. Upon investigation of defects, NVIDIA will determine 
	the root cause.  When agreed to by the applicable vendor, NVIDIA will attempt 
	to work with the vendors to resolve the compatibility issues.
