Not familiar with that software. Will it let me make a double sided OS9 boot disk?

the package you need is a product from D.P. Johnson called SDISK+BOOTFIX. I do have the disk, but I can't image it right now. Hopefully I can do that Real Soon Now (Monitor issues on the PC that has my 5.25" drive and OmniFlop programme).
Hope that helps.
