OK. . . I will see if it has USB boot ability and then get the image and try it.

Thanks for everything everyone!

If it will boot from a usb flash drive and you have one, loopback-mount 
the first install CD and cd to its images directory.  There's a 
bootdisk.img file there that you can copy to the USB drive with dd (note 
that this will wipe out anything else on it).
