Installing Win 2003 Server Using USB Floppy

I'm trying to load Windows Server 2003 SBE on an HP ML110 G3 server. I've configured RAID 1 on 2 250 GB SATA drives. I'm using a USB floppy drive. During installation, I'm able to press F6 and install the SATA RAID driver from the USB floppy. However, a little later in the installation, Windows asks me for the SATA RAID driver again (from the A drive). At this point, Windows does not seem to recognize the USB floppy as the A drive and nothing happens. Anyone have any suggestions?

invest in a $20 standard floppy drive.  Quickest solution.

I thought about that. However, this power supply does not have a floppy adapter. I'm sure there are adapters for that, but I don't have one handy and I really need to solve this problem today, if possible. Besides, I don't think the motherboard even has a port for a floppy drive.

That would be a bummer.. then you will have to slipstrem the SATA drivers.

The above link is information how to slipstream XP SP2...but you can incoporate the SATA drivers in the same process and have the installation run off a CD instead.
