You might try disabling the ROM temporarily and using the 
Trantor/Adaptec drivers and format program to set the disk up.

There are two unpopulated sockets on my two T130Bs.  One is a 20-pin 
DIP, which I suspect is probably something like an LS374 and the 
other is the boot ROM.  For yucks, I'd love a snapshot of the ROM and 
affirmation of what the other upopulated socket is.  In return, I 
could verify that your setup's right.
