Load RAID driver on Proliant with no floppy drive

How can I get the SATA RAID driver loaded when installing a Windows 2003 server when I have no floppy drive. Can a USB flash drive be used for this ? How do I make it look like a floppy disk ?

Thank you for the link(s).

I have looked through the information but it seems to suggest that G4 servers are required to support the USB Drive key and ML110 G2 is not mentioned anywhere.

Can I assume that a USB Drive key is a USB Flash Drive ?

Drive Key and flash would be same.
Difference only some USB memory modules are not useable as Drive (older) or make them as Floppy drive - for ones that able support as a drive - called: Drive Key in HP world
