I'm trying to load NW6 onto a VMWare ESX 3.0 server.  Unfortunately, I do not have a floppy on the server.  All I have is the original CD to install from.  I've created an ISO file and saved it on the ESX Server and the installation starts as expected.  WHen asked for the storage drivers, I am selecting the CPQSHD.CDM and, frankly, every other driver available on the disk.  The driver that I need has to support the LSI SCSI driver that VMWare recommends.  Novell has fixed support for that driver (around 2003, I think) but I now have to get the proper drivers to the server.  I have no floppy on the server.  

I'd be happy to iron out the details for discussion purposes but I am also fishing to see if this is a good spot for VMWare conversations.  I'd like to avoid the "NW6 is expired" discussion, if at all possible.
