SuSE Install Freezes on FDD Boot

I am currently trying to get SuSE running on a Panasonic Toughbook R1. The R1 lacks CDROM and FDDs, so I went and "borrowed" an external Imation FDD from staples. The boot disk loads up easily, but once the kernel has loaded, I need to load NIC drivers so I can FTP the install. However, when it asks me to put in module disk 3, it can't find the FDD.

I can't seem to figure out where I would specify that the FDD is USB and not somewhere else....???

Anyone have any experience with this?
