I have a Dell PowerEdge 2950 that is a couple years old. I'm trying to install windows server 2008 R2 on it but since R2 comes only on a DVD and my PE does not have a DVD drive I am stuck, how can I get the OS installed?

You can move the DVD files to a USB drive or purchase a external DVD ROM. You can purchase the DVD ROM from Dell pretty cheap as well.

Here are some more options.
