Hi,
I am planning on pulling a pci fax/modem card from a 8yr old computer and putting it into a newer computer that has XP Pro.  Once it is plugged into an open pci slot on the new XP Pro machine, once it boots up will it find it and install whatever is necessary?  or will I have to manually do lots of fun stuff to get it recognized?  Thanks!

If the card is still being made and current drivers are still included in Microsoft's packaged drivers then yes it should be detected by Win XP and installed.  Otherwise you will obviously have to install the drivers manually.
