Because there aren't the floppy i use an external floppy usb or pen drive, in it there are the drivers for HP RAID 6 port SATA, but after selected when the setup copy the files for continue to installation, the setup ask me put floppy with drive in a: .
And i stop it.

Having the same problem with a G3.
Had there been a FD controller on the mainboard it wouldnt be a problem. Spent 1.5 hours on the phone with HP support with no result.
IBM describes the problem here:

I have a Sony USB drive, and cant find any resellers who sell any other model. The server is supposed to be up tomorrow and I'm stuck.
Any solutions? HP cant possibly sell a server that you cant install???

Hoping this will be the solution to the problem...
Make a new Windows 2003 cd with the driver included:

I've used USB floppy drive from my SONY VAIO laptop and was able to install the drivers. I noticed that when you use USB thumb drive it first recognized the drive as A: but then during installation it changes it to C:, therefore when it asks you to put drivers in drive A: it is no longer there. USB Floppy drive is assigned letter A: and because its a floppy drive it never changes the letter. Hope this help. Note: I don't know if any other USB drive would work but the SONY I have did the trick so I figured it should work with any USB Floppy Drive.
