Creating a bootable zip-disk

I have a 250 mb Iomega zip-drive, and wondered if anyone know how to make a ms-dos zip-bootdisk? I hate those pesky 3,5" diskettes, would have been great if anyone have a tip on creating one in XP!

Couldn't you take the same exact files, from a MS-DOS bootup floppy disk, and transfer them to the zip disk? Make sure your BIOS is set to bootup from the zip drive.

The norton boots from a floppy and that will take you to the zip. Not sure if that is the same Norton™ Zip® Rescue that you get from Norton or not. But if it is you can boot to safe mode and or windows. It is a long boot time but it lets you get to things.
