How to create a USB Floppy Driver diskette ?

Since most new servers don't have an internal floppy drive, I bought an
external floppy drive and attempted to do ASR Restore on a Windows 2003
Server (IBM x385) using Sony's External USB Floppy (MPF88E).
I followed the instructions on how to create an ASR floopy from the ASR
Backup.

I booted the server with a Windows 2003 CD inserted, pressed F6 and F2 and
everything seemed to be O.K.

It asked me to insert the ASR floppy into the floppy drive (external USB
Sony MPF88E floppy drive).
Next, it asked me if I had additional storage drivers to add.

If I just proceed without entering anything (i.e. Just carriage return), it
starts initial Windows setup but then it complains (after a while) that the
system cannot find any floppy drive !?

Thus, I copied driver files from the CD (that came with the Sony External
USB Floppy MPF88E) onto a floppy.
However, when I insert this floppy into the floppy drive I get the error
message:

"TXTSETUP.OEM can not be found"

Obviousy, the driver diskette fromat was not right.
There were only two files on it: SONYU2K.CAT and SONYU2K.INF
The CD did not have any other file except for the useless README.TXT.

Windows Setup is onviously looking for the TXTSETUP.OEM.

Try this fix. It worked for me with a Sony USB floppy.

Note that txtsetup.oem is on the storage driver floppy. You shouldn't need
drivers for the USB floppy if your BIOS supports USB floppy drives.
