What you need are the motherboard IDE controller drivers and if this is onboard video, the motherboard driver for that.  Post which motherboard model you have - you can see it in the POST screen near the bottom or open up the box and look for white lettering on the edge of the motherboard.  If the video card is not onboard, look on www.nvidia.com for XP drivers for that card.

Ok, so your question is strictly about a video card, not a CDROM drive.  The Viper550 is a Riva TNT card, so look here for the latest XP Forceware driver: http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_91.31.html
