Default Can I trick a USB stick into an f6 disk?

Hi All,

As floppy drives are getting more scarce, is there a
way I can trick XP Pro's installer into thinking a
USB memory stick is an A: drive for use as an f6
extra drivers disk?

Many thanks,
-T

I've not seen any way, but fortunately an external USB floppy works.
Another option is to slipstream the drivers into the install CD.
