if I ain't mistaken, it ain't possible... the 800k disks used a different 
spinning drive mechanism... as the head would get to the outer reaches of the 
disk, the drive would make it spin slower so it can cram more data ontothe same 
amount of space... used a type of altered density....  I might have the exact 
disk type wrong, but I *know* some sort of Mac floppy uses that technology in 
it.

Hope I help more than I hurt...
