There's two tools available on the IBM site - one called PS2.EXE (which
IBM doesn't supply on a bootable floppy) and the other called PHDSK.EXE
(which IBM DOES supply on a bootable floppy).  PHDSK is for the
240/X/Z,570/E,A20,T20, X20, and a few others.

Get the bootable disk here:
but first read the docs:

This one doesn't work on the TP600.  I should know, I have a 570E, a 240X,
and a 600. ;)

For the 600(and 600E), you need this:
and you'll want the docs as well:

Unfortunately, IBM didn't provide this one for us on a bootable floppy.
