<<I'm not sure how you're going to write to the superdisk in a fashion that
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.>>

        My thought was to use TransMac98 on my PC, format the disk to 1.4mb and con
nect the SuperDrive to my SE30. That way, I can move compressed disk archive
s to the network for archival. The underlying activity here is to make archi
val copies of my existing 15-yr old diskettes and put images on my network.
If I can only get a Superdrive for the gs, I can move the programs over by 8
00k disks and then copy them to 1.4m.

<<If you have a CDROM burner, I'd be far more inclined to try burning a CD>>

        I do have one of these, and I'll probably burn a CD with the disk images on
it. Right now, I need to get the programs off of the diskettes onto a safe m
