Thanks for a very useful reply prowler.

Alternateively, if you have a Windows PC with at least one FAT partition and a 3-inch floppy drive and a DOS boot disk, you can actually generate both 1.44MB and 720kB Macintosh-formatted floppy disks from IMG files which will boot the PowerBook without running either a Mac emulator or WinUAE...

...and the System 7.5 Disk Tools floppy you require is a bootable 1.44MB Macintosh-formatted disk.
I think that's what I'll have to do. I have to dig up a floppy drive from somewhere and write it from a desktop machine. The great thing about the amiga is the way you can prepare drives for real steel amigas with the emulator, but I never used a mac back in the day, so I don't think it's quite as easy.

Thought maybe having the amiga would help, but the DD vs HD thing is the killer in this case. Just gotta find 21 HD floppies now
