Debian installation trouble on server

Hi all,

I'm trying to install Debian (latest) on a 1U rack-server.
Specs: P4, Raid (hot spare), no floppy, no cdrom, no PS/2 ports, 2 USB ports.

My problem is the following:
I cannot connect a cdrom drive, so I thought about installing Debian using floppies via a usb floppy drive. However, the 1st floppy gets read ok, but the next one (root) doesn't get read. Seems like there's no support for that kind of floppy drive (a Teac one). Someone told me to get daily floppy images from http://people.debian.org/~sjogren/d-i/images/daily/ but that server does not work.

Server also supports Bootp, but I only have Windows workstations in the LAN, and didn't find any useful tool to get it running.

Moreover, adding to the problem, is the Raid driver (Fastrak133mb "lite" PDC 20276 IDE RAID) which might not be in the linux floppies...

Does anyone have a solution for this kind of problem?
