There are DOS boot disks available that do not include the NTFSDOS 
drivers.  I went to TechTV's The Screen Savers or Call for Help web 
page.  They have a link directly to the files download area.  This 
allows you to download a bootable disk image for a floppy.  You should 
be able to use the image to make a boot disk.  Go to the IBM web site 
and search on PS2.exe and you should be able to download the program 
image and move that to the disk.  I know that someone on the list made 
an image disk and managed to write it to a floppy that would boot to at 
least DOS. 

If you could, contact me offlist and I could get a disk together, but I 
would have to mail it to you.

BTW, PS/2 is a 'family mode' program but WILL NOT run under Linux, Wine 
or Vmware.
