SBS2003+ML110G2+SCSI RAID, no FDD

As many others I struggle with the installation of SBS on a ML110 with SCSI RAID. Unfortunatelly, I have no other HP server to borrow the needed FDD, nor is the drive quickly avalilable from our distributor.

Does anobody knows any viable way?

Does anybody know the difference between HP floppy drives and standard ones? (cabling, jumer settings)

TIA,
Jan

One of the best ways to install Windows 2000/2003/2003SBS is to create your own install CD. This CD includes the Spk, this is referred to as "slipstreaming". This also allows you to add the necessary HP OEM drivers (like the SCSI RAID) to your install CD. No floppy is needed. If you need more information on how to do a Windows slipstream install, I would suggest the Microsoft - 2000/2003 forum.
Customers also use USB external floppy drives.
