  2. You can get basic functionality for this device because the drivers are
    already in Windows XP, but the software for mapping keyboard buttons to
    controller buttons isn't available. To use the device do the following:

    1. Connect the device to the gameport
    2. Start -> Run -> Control Panel
    3. Switch to "Classic View".
    4. Run the Gaming Options control
    5. In Gaming Options Click the "Add..." button.
    6. From the list choose "Microsoft SideWinder (Auto Detect)"
    7. This should install your device.
