Install raid drivers on a system without floppy

Hi, I have an HP Proliant ML-110 G4 without floppy and I need to install Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.4.

What can I do to install the raid drivers on a system without floppy ?

I saw some suggestion on this forum: map USB flashdisk as floppy into BIOS or map floppy to a nfs share.

Where I can find a detailed description of these options ?

Map USB flashdisk as floppy into BIOS is very interesting but I can’t find nothing on my bios.

Please help me.

Re: Install raid drivers on a system without floppy

I have worked alot with the ML110 series, not a G4 though.

1. Floppy drives are cheap. install one for now.
2. HP has a utility that turns a USB drive into an "A:" Drive, you could try that.
3. I have slipstreamed a Windows CDROM before so that the driver I need is available. Is there something with Linux that could do this for you?
