if you have dracs installed on the 1950 and 2950 you can use the virtual
floppy via drac and just point it to the iso or the img file and use the
boot menu to boot into that image you wouldnt even need the floppy or the
usb drive

I got rid of the floppy and used a key instead.  Interestingly enough, it
did not work on the rear USB connector but it did work on the front USB
connector.  Thanks, Claudio, and thanks to all who replied.
