Duplicate Entries in Device Manager

I just finished an install of Windows XP on a new PC I just built. I have an Asus motherboard and video card, and I installed the drivers on the cds that came with each. I have an Intel P4 3.2 ghz processor, and everything seems to be working properly. However, there are some duplicate entries in the Device Manager. Under Processors, it has my CPU listed twice, and under IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers, the following are all listed twice : Intel Ultra ATA Storage Controllers, Primary IDE Channel, Secondary IDE Channel. I tried to uninstall one of each, but it they didn't go away. It doesn't appear to be hurting anything, just a little bit of an annoyance. Thanks for any help!
