Windows 2003 Server Install needs RAID drivers on diskette... any way to change source media?

Installing Windows 2003 Server and require RAID drivers at the "press F6 for storage device" point of install... but my diskette drive isn't working and I don't seem have an option during the install to change the source of the RAID drivers in order to proceed to put the OS on the new mirrored drive set.  Any known work-around to supplying these drivers on a diskette?  [Troubleshooting the diskette drive itself is ongoing but if I can skip ahead, cool.]  Thanks.

If you can configure your system so that it sees a usb stick as drive A you can use that, failing that use nlite to slipstream the drivers and the windows CD into an ISO file which you can then burn onto a bootable CD - the wizard makes it easier than it sounds - http://www.nliteos.com/
If it's a dell server you can use the boot cd that came with it.  It will detect and preload any needed drivers then you continue with your install CD.
