Jerome Fine replies:
Making up the cable is actually rather easy in this case.
But my cable is buried somewhere at the moment. Basically,
34 lines are used for the 34 pin edge connector (daisy
chained if there are 2 drives) and the remaining 16 lines
are split into 2 groups of 8 lines, one for each of the
two 20 pin edge connectors, i.e. one for each drive. The
DM01 supports two MFM drives. If no one replies in a day
or two, I will try and locate my cable and specify exactly
how the connectors are set up.
If you attempted to send a reply and the original e-mail
address has been discontinued due a high volume of junk
e-mail, then the semi-permanent e-mail address can be
obtained by replacing the four characters preceding the
'at' with the four digits of the current year.
