Elegant and practical.

Or you could go for the brute force method of borrowing a USB CD-ROM
drive or a USB floppy drive. Not so much fun, I know.

Or, you could try booting from a USB stick with the boot.iso on it.
I almost got my mini-ITX board doing this.
Sadly the VIA-Rhine Ethernet driver isn't one of the stock drivers 
at instlal time, and I had no way of getting a driver on (no floppy).
