Drive A: in Proliant server for Win2000 installation

Hi,

I have some DL360 G5 servers where I do need to install Windows 2000 from a "standard" CD, unfortunately I don't have any Windows 2000 distribution for HP Proliant servers.

If I start installing, the installation process doesn't see any disk because the SCSI driver is not there. So I downloaded the drivers separately, the instructions and the process ask me to provide the drivers in a floppy disk in the old-fashioned floppy drive "A:" ...
... but there isn't any floppy drive "A:" in the system! Ouch!

Is there any tip to provide the necessary drivers via USB key (or whatever else method)?

Thank you in advance!
Best regards.
Diego.
