Loading drivers using usb device instead of floppy diskettes (RHEL 4)

Hello,

Any idea if we can use a usb device instead of using floppy disk to install drivers while installing??
We are trying to install Red Hat ES 4.0 on DL380 G5. We already got the img needed to install the missing driver using boot:
linux dd BUT we don't have a floppy device to put the driver on it using dd if=.....img of=.... bs=... count=...??

Any IDEA GUYS

Regards,

Perhaps you are looking for this, an HP USB Floppy Drive Key.

Or, you can use a Slimline Ejectable Floppy drive (390164-B21).
