I wanted this utility for a Toshiba hard drive crashed about a year ago. It had 98se on it and would boot up to "loading 98" and lock up. Fdisk would not correct the problem. As time has gone by, I've learned a little more. A month ago I installed a new 40gig hard drive in a friend's computer. It came with it's own utility floppy. Ok, as I was going through my junk box, I found the toshiba drive and decided that I knew enough how to fix it, maybe. Tried to find the Toshiba utility on their site. Talk about a maze. I couldn't find it. I now have a ibm uitility and western digital utility. Both would boot, see the drive, even test it, but not repair it. I got frustrated looking for a Toshiba utitily when the idea of seeing if my linux boot disk would work. Lo and behold, I was able to install Mandrake 8.2 without a problem. But since after several lightening storms, I no longer have a modem that any version of linux that I have will work with my modems. So I try fdisk again. Now it works!! I was able to fdisk, format, then dolly my complete 98se image to this hard drive (it's in my desk top). Used partition magic to restore it up to the max 4gigs. Scandisk and partition magic repaired any and all errors.
Evidently knowledge combined with tenacity is a good thing. I am glad that I didn't toss this the first time it beat me.
Thanks for the responses,
