    it's refering to a floppy disk that should have come with your motherboard or controller card.

    if u didn't get one then head to the mobo website and see if u can download the files

    Not sure if you've already done this, but you'll have to put the drivers on a floppy, probably in a certain set of directories (something like drivers\Si3112\winxp, but that's just a guess based on what I've seen), if there's any readme's with the drivers they might hopefully be able to give you a bit more info...
