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.
