J5 Jumper Funtion Description (* indicates default)
������������������������������������������������������
A
B
(A=vertical, pins 9 & 10; B=horizontal, pins 8 & 10)
OFF OFF
Drive is the slave (Drive 1).
OFF ON
Drive is the master (Drive 0) with slave (Drive 1) present.
ON* OFF
Drive s the master (Drive 0).
C
ON

(C=horizontal, pins 5 & 7)
Slave (Drive 1) Present is connected to J1 pin 39. Jumpers
"D" or "E" cannot be installed if jumper "C" is installed.

D
ON*

(D=vertical, pins 5 & 6)
DASP- is connected to J1 pin 39. Jumpers "C", "D", "F", or
"G" cannot be installed if jumper "E" is installed.

OFF

REFSIG is not connected to J1 pin 39.

E
ON

(E=horizontal, pins 3 & 5)
REFSIG is connected to J1 pin 39. Jumpers "C", "D", "F",
or "G" cannot be installed if jumper "E" is installed.

OFF

REFSIG is not connected to J1 pin 39.

F
ON*

(F=vertical, pins 3 & 4)
No external reference for REFSIG. Jumpers "E", "G", or "H"
cannot be installed if jumper "F" is installed.

OFF

This location provides a port for external connection of
the synchronized spindle reference signal (pin 3) and
ground (pin 4).

G
ON

(G=horizontal, pins 1 & 3)
REFSIG is connected to J1 pin 28. Jumpers "E" or "F" cannot
be installed if jumper "G" is installed.

OFF

REFSIG is not connected to J1 pin 28.

H
ON

(H=vertical, pins 1 & 2)
Drive implements "CSEL" (Cable Select line in I/O connector)
feature. Implementation not defined yet. Jumpers A and B
not used if jumper H is on. (This jumper is mutually
exclusive with jumper "G").

OFF*

Drive select is based on use of jumper A or B.

* MAY REQUIRE FORMATTING AND PARTITIONING SOFTWARE. ALSO, CHECK TO
SEE IF YOUR CMOS SETUP HAS A "CUSTOM" OR "USER DEFINABLE" DRIVE TYPE
AVAILABLE. (see below)
Possible translation:

895 cyl, 15 heads, 62 sectors = 426,163,200

Note: A "custom" or "user-definded" CMOS drivetype may ask for a
numerical value for the Write Precompensation cylinder and for the
Landing Zone cylinder. A basic rule-of-thumb for drive models that do
not require the old Write Precomp technique or a Landing Zone because
they are Auto-Parking is to add 1 to the cylinder value being used. As
an example: If cylinders equaled 820, then both Write Precomp and
Landing Zone would be entered as 821. Some BIOS will convert this to
65535 or -1, which are functionally equivalent to "none (not used)".
PHYSICAL/LOGICAL equivalent to NATIVE/TRANSLATION
Already low-level formatted at the factory.
Since a User-definable or Custom translation geometry may be used, it
is imperative that the values be written down and kept with your
permanent records for retrieval in the event of CMOS battery failure.
