You have a SCSI superdrive. I know there are IDE cards for the GS, but I
know NOTHING about them. I'd expect them to perform the same tho.

I'm not sure how you're going to write to the superdisk in a fashion that the
GS can read. You *might* be able to format the superdisk on your PC
as an ISO9660 or a MAC CD, and then put the disk in the superdrive on the
GS before you power it up, so it thinks it has a CDROM mounted. Might.
CDROM support is a little dicy on GSOS, and whether the file system driver
will deal with a non-standard disk size I have no idea. That's what I'd
try first though.

If you have a CDROM burner, I'd be far more inclined to try burning a CD
and reading THAT on the GS, but I never tried that either.
