Nah, once you've got XP installed it's usually a matter of installing  
the proper SATA/AHCI driver (I think in this case it's called Intel  
Matrix Storage Driver), rebooting and resetting BIOS to  

I've done this a bunch of times. With one chipset it wouldn't play  
ball, but then I got a "prepare" driver for another chipset that  
allowed me to boot and, when XP asked for the driver, install the  
proper one.
Once I get to work on Monday (GMT+1) I'll see if I can dig up which  
drivers I used. I think I have it documented.

That said, I guess having working RME-ALSA drivers would be the best solution.
