OS9 HDD reading/writing on win98

Mayby this problem is very simply, but i don't have a time to search
on net about it.
I have HDD (20GB) from automatic industry machine with OS9. Now i need
to format this and making new directories and copying some important
files. I can't do it directly on the machine. So... how can i read and
write from windows 98 (or pocket linux)?

Please quick answer on priv. ( XXXX@XXXXX.COM )

Best regards.

Someone in Germany sells an OS9Tools program. There is a demo on
CompuServe IIRC

Look here for LinuxRBF, a Linux kernel module that supports OS9 disk

To do this easily would be a good trick, unless.... If you have the
hard disk networked or can easily network the OS9 hard disk this
becomes easy.

With the OS9 hard disk networked you can FTP the files to the
DOS(Windows 98) system.

The other option(tedious) is to use dsave to copy the files to a
floppy disk. Hopefully you do not need to save too many files that
this is a pain.

Dear Josiek,
there is an OS-9 emulator available called "OS9exec".
It is ported on MacOS, Windows and Linux.

Porject is available under:

"OS9exec" is able to read RBF as well as the
host's file system. Files can be copied simply
with 'dsave' to Windows or whereever.
