The 150 is a '030 PowerBook, so it will not boot OS 8 natively (it needs
a hack like Born Again). It doesn't run System 6, so it must be running
some form of System 7 (it came with 7.1 IIRC).

Amazingly, Disk Warrior *should* work on this unit -- it does have 68K code
and it does support IDE. Officially, it requires an '020 or better running
7.1 or higher and the 150 should support all that. On my DiskWarrior 3.0.3
CD there is a complimentary copy of DiskWarrior 2.1.1 for Classic.

It's 1.3MB, though, so you're going to need to find an external drive to
boot from. This isn't going to fit on a Disk Tools floppy with the OS.
