Hitachi Feature Tool comes as a bootable floppy as has done this for 
every hard disk I've owned (which is only a handful, but includes, 
Hitachi, Samsung, IBM and Maxtor).  Google will find it for you.

There have also been posts this week about a bootable CD which contains 
every useful tool under the sun (and a few useless ones, no doubt) which 
I think contained this, as well as various other manufacturers' disk
