 First, I know that this may sound silly, but where is the RESET key on the
GS? My system came with what looks to be a Mac ADB keyboard. Is the RESET
key the power key along the top, above the number keys?

 Back to the drive. I initialized the drive from within the GS/OS Finder
(using the Disk | Initialize menu item). I did not specifically partition
the disk, though. If you use the Apple Disk utility (that's probably not the
exact name) that comes on the GS/OS disks, it shows no partitions, although
it identifies the drive as ProDos.

 How exactly should I take to get this to work properly? I'm obviously
missing a step somewhere.
