iastor.sys corrupt

I have a Tyan Tempest i5000xl dual xeon board.  Wouldn't boot so I put in the
XP64 install disk.  During setup I get message iastor.sys corrupt.  I gather from reading solutions this means sata drivers not being loaded.  That makes sense since later error message says no hard disks

I've read that you download the sata driver to a floppy.  I can do that- I have another computer with a floppy and the computer in question has a floppy.  Can't find the download.  Also read something about Tyan having SATA built in to the board. I don't know what that means or how this all fits together.

One more fact.  Other error message I get is no mass storage device.
