Is there any way to install XP on a Sata hard disk without floppy?

if there isn't any way, I have another hard disk with win98 installed on it , and if I create an image file of already installed XP will I be able to recover it from win98 to an NTFS partition?

thx in advance

During windows XP installation, to install 3rd party drivers like SATA, a floppy disk drive is required. The only provision made in windows is to look for this driver on a floppy in drive a. There is an alternative. This would be splitstreaming the SATA driver into the Windows installation CD.
