RAID driver for Windows 2003 without external FDD

Hello experts,

I have an HP ProLiant DL140 G3 server. I am trying to install Windows server 2003 on it.

I don't have neither the RAID driver floppy disk nor an external FDD.

Is there any way for installing Windows 2003 server on RAID by CDRom or USB flash only?

As I remember there is only one way. During installation process you have to use floppy disk with drivers :/ Sorry

Do you have HP ProLiant Essential Foundation Pack? There should be possibility to install Windows Server 2003 with HP drivers in unattended mode.
I would ssecond using nlite as suggested above, works well for me.
Buy a USB floppy.  They're cheap and it works fine.
Slipsteam the driver to Windows OS CD.
