There's no such thing as an NTFS bootable floppy, but you can use a 3rd party utility called NTFSDOS from www.winternals.com. The previous post mentions www.sysinternals.com, which is the sister-website of winternals.com that offers freeware. However, NTFSDOS is not freeware, and it is sold through the www.winternals.com website, which offers NT system utilities software that is NOT free. I suggest that you purchase the NTFSDOS pro version, since the non-pro version is quite restricted in what you can do. Good luck!

Clarification: there IS a version of NTFSDOS on the sysinternals web site, but it is does not allow you to read and write to the NTFS partition. It only allows you to read and execute programs from an NTFS partition. The newer version allows both read and write access to the NTFS partition from a floppy.

I think what you need is either NTFS Professional (you can write to the NTFS partition) at http://www.sysinternals.com/ntfspro.htm or NTFSDOS (will allow reading the NTFS partition - freeware) at http://www.sysinternals.com/ntfs30.htm.

NTFSflp will allow you to create a NTFS-formatted floppy.

You can download the utilities above and, if you have an IDE Zip drive, and a BIOS that will actually work, boot from it.

I've done this a couple of times in the past, but not recently.
