Question Is it possible to have a usb floppy drive as A: on Bios?

It appears the pins for my floppy drive on my motherboard are broken so i cant install a normal floppy drive. I am setting up a hardware raid on Phoenix Bios and I have a USB floppy drive. When i am installing windows and it asks me if i have third party raid drivers i press f6. i specify which driver and it asks me to insert disk in drive a: I put my raid driver disk in my usb floppy nd nothing happends I figure nothing happends because the computer isnt recognizing the usb floppy as drive A: Is there any way I can make it so the computer thinks my usb floppy is drive A: or any other device such as a USB flash disk?
