I am interested in IDE controller chipsets because I need to keep
an eye on the model of the controllers for when I change the mobo.

Seems that WinXP gets installed with a driver for only one
particular IDE controller.


Yep. But that doesn't matter, as you should be doing a full reinstall when
changing the Motherboard anyway.

Where can I get a list of controller chipsets used over the last
three years or so?


For what ? As above, the full reinstall required, means it doesn't matter
what drive controller is present.

If you *REALLY* need to move an XP installation to another board, then you
need to be using Microsoft's SysPrep tool. Bear in mind you'll need to grab
an approproate INF file full of drive controller IDs, if you wanna change
drive controllers.

A full reinstall when changing motherboards is not needed or required.

I have found that sometimes that is not necessary. In fact,
sometimes there is almost nothing that needs doing.

No point in doing a full re-install for those times.


It's good practice to.

You may run into problems further down the line, otherwise.

Thanks for mentioning SYSPREP. I took a look at it
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/p...ploying/introd
uction.asp

but the info deosn't say anything about it checking for IDE
controller compatability between two systems.


It's an EXCELLENT tool. Do some Googling - you can use it to sort IDE
controller compatability between two systems as long as you grab an INF file
that contains a bunch of controller IDs. Search for Sysprep Inaccessible
Boot Device.
