Default So close to being able to install Windows

I am so close to being able to install windows! But I have encountered a problem. Note I bought my Gigabyte GA-K8NS Ultra Socket 939 motherboard RETAIL and It didn't come with a floppy with SCSI Drivers.

I have found the drivers online and burnt them to a floppy disc. I start installing Windows and it says I need to specify another device to install scsi drivers.

It then asks me to insert the manufacturers floppy. I insert mine with the drivers and it didn't even try and think. So I flipped the floppy disc connector upside down and the green light does go when it is searching.
It asks me again to insert the floppy as if I didn't insert it in the first place.

I have a Samsung Spinpoint 80GB SATA 150 Hard drive with a Gigabyte GA-K8NS ULTRA SOCKET 939 Motherboard.

I don't want to call Gigabyte's tech support twice in one day so I hope you guys can help!

I can't because it will say it cannot find a hard drive.
