Windows 2003 - DL 180G5 with P400 Controller

Hi,

I have a DL180 G5 with four 160 GB hard drives in Raid 5 (using a smart array P400 controller for the array).

DL180 doesn't support SmartStart for deploy, so i start the windows 2003 setup directly from the OS media. The setup asks for the SATA drivers during the installation.
I don't have a floppy drive in the server, and i need the correct drivers to proceed with the deploy of Windows 2003.

Does anyone knows what the driver i have to use?
I can use with a USB Pen Drive?

Searching on the HP site i found only the easy cd for DL180 G6.
But i'll try to use it on G5.

Sooner or later i'll post the results.

Thanks.
