George Ramsower,

Your out of luck unless you can get a older PC with say Win 98/ME.  I 
use Linux and I have utilities called FD Utilities for formatting 
floppies and configuring the floppy drive. Allows to make and access 
"special" floppies, such as Coco, CP/M, OS/2's XDF format and other 
formats.  Stores up to 1992K on a high density disk. I use this alot for 
making disks, but you need to add Linux as a dual boot to use it, if you 
have the space. Windows is crap and its sad so many people are stuck 
with it.  If your interested checkout  Open Linux such as SUSE Linux 
http://www.opensuse.org/Download I find it the best to install and it 
will blow you away on how nice it works, also it a UNIX like OS so your 
knowledge of OS-9 will transfer easy.
