I have had a problem with a hard drive, where it was partitioned to be
a HFS partition for OS9. I really only want to use this computer as a
Graphic Design workstation; but am having problems getting Disk First
Aid, Drive Setup, or Norton Diskdoctor to recognize the hard drive.
When and if it does, it says that it cannot be initialized; sometimes
the HD light comes on and sometimes it doesnt. What I was wondering
is: is it simply a problem with the hard drive? If it isn't, what
else could be involved? Is there a way for a macintosh to boot off of
a IBM disk with Mac files on it (only other working computer is an
IBM), and is there a site that has Macintosh low-level format programs
and boot programs for Mac OS9?
