Solving hardware installation problems

You might need to reconfigure the workstation when you add or remove hardware, such as an additional
diskette drive. If you install a PNP (positive-negative-positive) device, Windows XP automatically
recognize the device and configure the workstation. If you install a non-PNP device, you must
reconfigure the workstation after completing installation of the new hardware.
