?HOWTO make a MO disk bootable

?HOWTO make a MO disk bootable

Hi All, I have a Sony SMO-F541 MO drive and I have been trying to create a bootable MO disk. But unsuccessful so far.

My SCSI bios actually assigns a drive letter to the disk but using win98 dos I get something like 'invalid drive' (I'm trying fdisk in a minute... just thinking of it... )

Furthermore, I've tried:
- Windows XP format
- Diskdrive Tuneup utility (can't find a bootable option).
- Partition Magic (both Dos and windows version, does not find the drive at all).

I was trying to access a 1024 byte/sector disk. Now I succeeded using dos and partition magic. If anyone has a windows based solution, I am still interested.

Cheers, Jeroen
