More information is needed to help you. What is the device you are downloading the driver for, where did you find that one and what is the computer model number?

Victor, are you installing XP from a CD or DVD? Typically, on this kind of install you would first boot from the optical drive. Windows installation will start and begin copying files to your hard drive that will be used for the next phase of the installation. The first restart should boot off of the hard drive and continue installing Windows. When you say that it goes back to the beginning, I'm wondering if maybe the system is booting off the optical drive after the first reboot instead of the hard drive.

Here's a great link that has lots of pictures of each stage of the install with instructions as well:
http://www.winsupersite.com/sh....._clean.asp

On the system shown, as on many I've used, there is a message to "Press a key to boot from CD". On the first boot you should press the key, and on the first reboot you should not press the key. If your system behaves differently, you might need to pull the disc out or go to the boot menu and choose the hard drive.
