Got a compaq 5714 from yard sale had no HDD with deal and I had a 16 gig hdd laying around, I have generic drivers for the HDD and none for a CD burner and DVD drive that came with it, do I install with a reg CD-rom drive and add these components later? And do I unplug the Modem and Ethernet cards from motherboard? Basically, is it safer to do minimum install and add components later, plugging in one at a time? Oh yeah, where do I get the audio and vid drivers for this MOBO?

It would be best to put it all together with a clean install. Win98 will take care of any drivers you might need for the dvd and cd burner. You can find other drivers at Info on the computer can be found at the link below.
