Gateway 420gr sata driver in XP

\015 On a Gateway 420gr what should the sata driver be listed as in device manager in XP. I did a re-install of XP and don't have the original restore DVD. Evrything is running, but the IDE driver is not listed as SATA. It says something like Ultra IDE or something. Is this the right dirver?\015
