Actually, I just read all info, and only first tool can be run from bootable floppy, and the other one ([SDIAG] SCSI Diagnostic Tool ) has to be run from within Windows.
I propose, you first try Hitachi tool (Drive Fitness Test): Download Drive Fitness Test Windows Diskette Creator v4.15 b01 (12.16.2008) (Direct Link)
It will create bootable floppy.
You can create the floppy on another computer.
Put the floppy into bad computer, and restart it.

      You have to boot from that floppy disk.
      You put the disk in, and you restart computer.

        OK. Do you have floppy drives on both computers? Bad one, and good one?
        If so, when you run Drive Fitness Test Windows Diskette Creator, it'll ask you to insert floppy disk to create bootable floppy.

            it says:
            Device driver error!

            Cannot create target diskette.

            It may be something wrong with floppy drive, then.
            Let's try to create bootable CD, then.
            Use 3rd Hitachi link: Drive Fitness Test v4.15 b01 (12.16.2008) - CD Image
            You have to burn downloaded dft32_v415_b01.iso file to blank CD.
            To do so...
            Download, and install free Imgburn: http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download
            Using Imgburn, burn dft32_v415_b01.iso to a CD on good computer
            Boot the bad computer to the CD...let it finish loading.
