can't you find somebody w/ a mac you can borrow?? much eaiser. (i'm not sure it's currently possible on a PC).  Maybe check you local library or school.  Any elementary school and certainly any college should have at least one they are willing to let you use to make a boot disk.  In any case, you will need the system software or a utility like Norton...  what happend to the boot disk that came w/ the computer?  corrupt?

the answer.....no. There are important resource forks in system files that a PC cant even see much less store. You MIGHT be able to do it with a mac emulator on a PC. But a pc on its own cannot make a mac boot disk.
