Booting from a USB DVD Drive

I just purchased a used 2850 and have initilized the two drives on Raid 1, I was able to F6 the controler driver in but have backed out of the server 2003 installation:

CD Rom only
Want to install OS 2008

I was going to use the evaluation copy of OS 2003 in the CD rom but it required a key code to install and they don't seem to be giving those out anymore.

How do you boot to a USB DVD or a Jump Drive?  Or is it better to try and break down the OS 2008 onto bite sized CD's..

Thank you, I have been working on this with not much success yet.. I will try again.  The biggest problem is setting up the Bios to boot from a USB port, I can't seem to be able to find that in there..
