"Guide" page - USB driver section needs update

Hi,

I'm new to Arduino and ordered my first board today. I read the Guide page for Windows users.

The 3rd section is about Locate the USB drivers

If you are using a USB Arduino, you will need to install the drivers for the FTDI chip on the board. These can be found in the drivers/FTDI USB Drivers directory of the Arduino distribution. In the next step ("Connect the board"), you will point Window's Add New Hardware wizard to these drivers.

The latest version of the drivers can be found on the FTDI website.

Unfortunately there is no note if the USB Arduino needs the VCP or D2XX driver. So please add this important information to the guide page.

It's the VCP (Virtual Com Port) drivers that you need.

The link is to the VCP page.

Yes, but I was not shure which driver is the right one. So I would add just a little note to the Guide page.

For example change this: The latest version of the drivers can be found on the FTDI website.

To this: The latest version of the [u]VCP (Virtual Com Port)[/u] drivers can be found on the FTDI website.

And every newcomer should be shure it's right. ;)
