Check your BIOS and see if there is a setting for the SATA controller in there. Your system might be a BIOS controlled harddrive controller where the setting is changed in the BIOS and it will auto boot to the right controller
RAID set ups must use at least 2 seperate harddrives....stay away for this configuration.
This is what I found for the model you gave and for using windows XP Drivers & Downloads
There is a SATA driver and it has specific installation proceedures but only after it has been installed from what I read....Dell might be using a generic download/install note for covering all driver downloads....you might try it and do the set up and see if this is what you are needing.
Ususally a program called "Make Disc" is used to set up the correct media(floppy disc or cd) for installing SATA and/or RAID controllers during the F6 installation method.
I think that you are going to have to take a look at the BIOS and make a determination!
