>Booting the server with the live CD?

Yeah, I need to update the image on the servers USB key that it boots
from. The only way to do it is to physically remove the USB key and
put in my wkst so I can write to it which requires me to be onsite or
boot the server via some live cd so I can get physical access to the
usb key remotely.

>Are you going to try to log into the machine you boot from the live CD?

Yeah, it is an HP and it has iLO2 so I can interact as if I was in
the server room.

>First, the file you are trying to get of the CIFS share and get to

The file (an updated image of the USB key) is available by means of
a CIFS share on that network and I want to re-write the image of the
usb key with it.

>Second, what OS is the server running now?

Vmware ESXi Server...

>Third, if the file on the server's drive(s), or mounted from another

You mean the updated image I am trying to write? It is a file server.
