Anything is possible, but I actually did read the article, so that doesn't 
apply here. It was to get an AHCI driver for XP on a certain asus MB for speed 
I try to not talk out of my behind unless I happen to get into the bourbon 
first, but that is also not the case here.
And needing to download a windows driver for some kind of emulation like 
ndiswrapper doesn't mean you need to install it in windows, or even have a 
copy of windows.
