: down load Seagates disk manager and run it onto
: a floppy it will overlay the BIOS and give you
: full capacity, it will even partition for you
: and format at high speed.

Okay, I got the disk manager suite, and I created
2 floppies with it, one of which is the Disk
Manager boot diskette.

Also, as per the instructions detailed in the
disk manager suite, I removed the jumper cable to
set the drive to be in primary slave mode.
(The instructions say this need only be temporary,
but I since I am using this as a secondary drive
and not a primary drive, I won't need to change
that back.) I still can not run it from within
Windows (the Seagate software doesn't recognize
my drive to be in primary slave mode) and the
floppies do not seem to have PCMCIA support built
in, nor can I figure out what driver I need to use
to load the PCMCIA SCSI support. :-(

One other note: it seems like the Seagate software
was really intended for use with ATA devices, and
not SCSI ones, at least by all the documentation
which came with it.

Any other ideas?
