    Hi , I had problems with OLYMPUS-MO-Disk too (with an Philips MO drive). I
    don't know, if this was a problem with the geometry. I think, I have checked
    the MO with fdisk an saw that the disk is partitioned for more than one system.
    So I partitioned the disk for FAT16 and than create a DOS-Filesystem. I think I
    had made it completly with LINUX, but I'm not sure. After that the Olympus-MO
    works fine under Linux and Win 95.

    Hope this ist helpfully for you.
