hot to make a bootable iomega zip (100mb)

I have my HD tha is badly fragmented and the only way to properly fix   it (with norton 4.0 on system 8.5) is if I boot it  from  zip.. What are  the minimun files required to boot the system? I've already installed  on a zip what the installer cd calls  "the minimum system 7.5.3 " but it  won't boot... Please help, Norton cannot fix otherwise the startup disk! Thanks so much  Alfonso.

1.Drag a copy of your system folder over to the Zip disk
2. If your zip drive is the only external device. Make sure is is terminated.
3. Either select Apple>Control Panels>Startup disk and select the inserted zip disk. After you restart make sure you insert the zip, before the happy face appears.

4. Or, Insert the zip, Select Special>restart
5. Press and hold. option+apple+shift and Delete. This will force your computer to look for an external drive and start up from the zip.

Thanks for the quick answer...It worked...but now  I boot the system, ( either from  the zip or the system cd)  still there is no way I can use Norton Utilities 4.0  to defragment the HD...there  is always a message "Unable to Find ObjectSupportLib" or  " Norton SharedLib it is not in the extension folder"  even if the last one is in the extension folder...even if I reinstall the Norton utilities I still  keep getting this messages...THANKS IN ADVANCE!
