Apple //gs boot problem

I finally got a working SCSI card for my Apple //gs, but I now have a
problem booting off of the hard drive.

    Here's the setup. CMS SCSI card to Miniscribe 20mb hard drive (old Mac
SE drive). GS/OS 6.0.1 diskettes used to setup the hard drive. All files
copied to hard drive with no errors; files are visible and runable from
GS/OS. Turning off the machine and turning it back on produces a "Check
startup device" error. Booting with the "no harddrive" GS/OS diskette works
fine. All required files are on the hard drive.

    It's almost like a boot block is not written to the drive. For
installation instructions, I culled info from Nathan Mate's Apple // web

    Any clues?? I installed GS/OS multiple times with the same results.
