USB Gamepad Help Needed

I'm pulling out my hair trying to get a gamepad (ANY gamepad) working on my computer.

I bought a Logitech Wingman, and it wouldn't install so I took it back. Yesterday I bought a Gravis Eliminator Aftershock and I seem to get similar issues with this. It's driving me crazy. I went to Gravis' website to download the newest drivers, followed the directions, and I still get the following message:

An error occurred during the installation of this device:
The driver installation file for this device is missing a necessary entry. This may be because the INF was written for Windows 95 or later.

I'm running a 2.8G p4 on XP home with 512 MB RAM.

Any ideas? Thanks.
