I run a number of systems purely as servers - they all have a CDROM
drive. I think they all have floppy-drives too, but I'm not certain.
Not to say you need to do that, but it's pretty handy in many
situations. (none of these boot from USB, otherwise I probably would
have been experimenting with putting the installation on a USB-stick).

Something like that, but how are you going to start the install system?
You'll need to boot that from somewhere. Maybe use the mini-boot-iso
on a USB-stick? (I don't know if that'll work).
