Fdisk of warp 4 does not detect jaz disk. I took drivers from Iomega for OS/2 but without success. I want to put Warp 4 onto Jaz drive only. Had anybody had put Warp 4 onto Jaz drive? How? My configuration is:
SCSI: a) Seagate Barracuda 4.3 (currently C: with Win 95)was partitioned on 1+1+2 G; b) Panasonic CD rom CR 506B (x8); Jaz drive; HP 6020e CD recorder.
IDE: 1.2 & 0.7 G WD HDs.

I have found drivers for Panasonic CD & Jazz but this did not help me. jaz disk is not recognizable at the time of installation (diskette # 3)
Thanks in advance.

The Iomega drivers for OS/2 are old and
not that great.  There is a NEWDASD.EXE
package available that provides native,
seamless support for all sorts of
removable drives.  I have a Jaz drive,
and NEWDASD is great.  Check the
OS/2 Removable Media homepage.  You can
find a link to it from my homepage
http://www.io.com/~timur/index.html.

What you will need to do is to modify
your boot disks to load the NEWDASD
drivers.  Probably the second of the
three boot disks is the one you want.

Also, you can try configuring your SCSI
controller to treat your removable drives
as a boot device.  In fact, now that I
think about, this is probably the real
cause of your problem.
