I don't know your technical skills but if you look at the docs you will see
the WD1000 was the start of a series of devices that defined a uniform way
of communicating with disk drives that later was called IDE.
I'll look at the pinout but I believe that the WD1000 uses a subset of the
IDE connector pinout (and software commands).
The biggest differences would have to be: 256 byte sector limitation,
Geometry is fixed in BIOS.
