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.

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.
