Installing WMware on Dell PowerEdge R515 server

I just ordered a Dell PowerEdge R515 server which I will setup to be used with WMware ESX 4.1 (the first time I'm working with WMware ESX)

A while ago I posted a question about how to install VMware ESX and someone suggested I use a USB drive ESX and use the storage in the server for WM's.

I would like to know recommendation on what USB drive I should use? Just a regular USB stick drive? I was thinking about Kingston for brand name?

Any advice for me?

That will be fine (Kingston).....I recommend minimum 2GB, but 5GB would be best.

Also what size should I use?
All you do is connect your USB during install & the install will recognize it. After install, pwr down your host, connect your disks, create a RAID & then add them as a datastore thru vSphere Client.
