Win2000 started this... basically it means that the driver is signed& certified by microsoft to work properly with your system.  Normally you are given a dialog box telling you that the driver is not signed, do you still want to install and you can select the proper choice to continue installing. Not all hardware manufacturers sign their drivers and some just use the generic drivers which usually are not signed/certified either.  Either way you should be able to get it to install properly.

If you do NOT have the choice to continue installing, you can right click on my computer, go to properties, hardware tab, driver signing, and choose the option to "warn" you. then click ok through everything, restart your computer and reinstall the drivers. At that point you should be able to install them properly.  Oh...almost forget you have to do this while logged on as an administrator.
