I am installing Windows XP Pro on the above mentioned board.  I need to hit F6 and load drivers for the Intel RAID.  The PC has a floppy drive, but I have no floppy disk.

Can I somehow load the drivers from my USB drive?

thanks

A USB floppy drive works, but check out the following

only some models of USB floppy work, without modifying Windows using http://www.nliteos.com/.
