install windows 2003 server to an IBM x3650 server off the microsoft installation dvd media

Computer Servers Question

For a very specific reason, I need to install windows server 2003 to an IBM x3650 server off the microsoft installation dvd media instead of using the ibm serve raid CD.  

I pressed F6 to specify 3rd party driver off a USB floppy drive.  The floppy disk contains the right drivers I downloaded off the IBM web site.

Thanks in advance.
