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.

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.
