    I want to install certain drivers for my geforce2 pro. However, when I remove the device from device manager and reboot, xp automatically detects the device and installs the ms driver for it. How can I disable xp from doing this so I can freshly install the driver, instead of installing over the xp one?

    Go to the Services window (Administrative Tools -> Services). There you can disable the Shell Hardware Detection service.
