I am an old mainframe guy. (part of flashing lites and switches) I have been reading for two days.
Now I am more confused than before I started.

The drive is in slave mode...second drive on cable...spins up...
bios autodetect does not & hangs
manual setup does not & hangs
Do I?
Flash new bios?
Install IBM Drive Manager Software?
Stand on my head & pull my left ear?
Give up & buy new computer?

I have only found horror stories, myths, and half truths regarding the installation of this drive. Surely there is someone out there who has successfully installed one...

Would he (she) please step forward and tell us how they did it?
