I'm not sure that booting off of the scsi is possible with the ESDI
setup present.

The special boot partition can be created elsewhere. You need the
Reference disk and the Diagnostic disk for your machine. Both should be
available on the Internet, do a Google search for MCA Mafia. Most of
the MCA Mafia hangs out at in Usenet.
