PROBLEM: Need to use a floppy to install license files on a server that does not contain a floppy drive.

SOLUTION: Plug a USB device into the USB port of the server.

EXAMPLE: NetWare 6.5 supports USB devices, and most new servers come with USB ports. Just plug in a USB memory stick (or I would assume a USB floppy or CD). NetWare picks up the new drive letter--you can interrogate this by pressing ALT-ESC from the GUI screen, going to the ':' console and typing VOLUMES to get the drive letter. Use this drive letter to install the files or licenses.
