Installing third-party SCSI drivers without a floppy drive

When installing Win2k server, how do I install third-party SCSI drivers without a floppy drive? When you select F6 during the setup, it defaults to A: without an option to select another source.
Install a floppy drive, use it for the installation, then remove it afterwards. OR, build a custom install of the distribution files and create a \#OEM$ folder with the extra drivers. Then burn a CD with the custom build. See the following links for details:
