The drive select jumper just links one of the drive select pins on the
interface connector to the appropriate internal signal. So if your drive
doesn't have jumpers, all you need to do is make up a cable between the
controller and the drive that (in this case) takes drive select 0 from
the cotnroller to whatever select pin (probably DS1) that the drive does
respond to. And link all other signals straight-through.
