For all of the latest drivers and Firmware updates, check out this link: http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/locate/69_6265.html

According to the Server installation sheet you do not use SmartStart for installation. Boot from a USB device is not supported (see http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00714240/c00714240.pdf)

Default boot priority
By default, the server searches for boot devices in the following order:
1. CD-ROM drive
2. Removable devices
3. Hard drive
4. Network boot

My suggestion is to download the appropriate drivers from the Storage Controller section of the software downloads. Burn them to a cd and then hit the F6 key during the initial 2003 OS build to add the driver you want.
