Floppy and CD-ROM drives, why do I need them? They take up to much
chassis real estate and I never use them after the server is in
production. Why can't I do all this stuff with USB?

If I got a USB flash, USB CD-ROM, and/or a USB floppy drive what could
I do with it?

* Boot into DOS to run BIOS updates?
* Load the FreeBSD CD to a flash drive and boot / install from it?

I see no reason to keeping buy them, there like tits on a bull.
