BL495 loading RH 5u2

I'm trying to load a new BL495 with a 10g ethernet card. The drivers aren't included with RH5u2, but there is a driver disk released by HP, ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib2/software1/pubsw-linux/p299183725/v48649/bnx2x-1.45.11-rhel5.x86_64.dd.txt . The problem I have is that the 10g is the only card on the blade, so the only way to load this is using the virtual media. The virtual media "mount" doesn't want to recognize the driver disk.

Any clues?
Thanks!
Mark

mount the disk before the OS installer starts. And use floppy image.
