It will be Ok without a floppy.

I think he was referring to if you have to setup a RAID array as for needing a floppy for that operation.

Yep, it is absolutely necessary to have a floppy drive for fresh installations unless you slipstream the XP CD with the necessary drivers. If you dont have one I would suggest just buying one since they are only like six bucks. Or you could just borrow someones.
