And, I say for him to use a floppy if the server has a floppy drive. Now
why?? It will take out his layer of complexity because using a the USB
Drive requires to much effort from him to comprehend on how it should be

Yeap, you's right 'linux dd'

Well, now if he read a little bit he would get the point and figure it
out. He did not even read the Readme file about the driver to start with
and how to install it. I believe he just linked into the email and that
was it.  Maybe I'm wrong...

Karan, if he even would have attempted to even read the driver readme I
do not think he would be saying anaconda installer want take the driver
or what have you.
I don't know but I have got the feeling that using 'linux dd' and the
driver image will work.
