Follow the instructions on this article, copying the Windows Server 2003's \i386 where it says to copy windows XP's. If you run into any kind of trouble check out the comments for the article, they can help.
This is not a full-proof process, consider it an experiment. Incidently now is a good time to talk your boss into purchasing a usb-dvd drive. Only costs about 30 bucks and helps a lot when you need one on a machine that doesn't have one or has a broken one.
Let me know if this helps. :)
