How do I boot a W2K Server with a USB Hard Drive attached for client backups?

When my W2K reboots, it hangs up unless I turn the portable hard drive off first.  It appears that the server thinks the HD is a floppy drive.  I've tried to set the bios so that it doesn't try to boot off a floppy, but it still happens.

If you are lucky a BIOS upgrade might help. Otherwise there probably isn't much you can do if you have already tried all the BIOS settings.
