That part is probably a typo. It says to use a FDD or USB removable storage
for the driver disk image. Either expand it to a floppy, which the server
probably doesn't have, or put it unexpanded onto a USB flash drive.
Then boot from the built in optical drive and use the linux dd command.

Or you can use
linux
dd=http://130.217.247.31/~clintd/R905/rhel5-sata_svw-2.10.6-manykernels-dd.img
(watch the wrap, above should be on one line) to pull it off your webserver if
you give the setup a proper gateway address so it can reach outside.
