I doubt you can still get them, but I've seen those adapters (heck, I've 
got a couple in use on my 5160 machine) that were in the form of a small 
PCB with card edge fingers (to plug the cable connector onto) and a 2-row 
34 pin harder socket soldered to the PCB that fitted onto the back of the 
3.5" drive. And there was a jumper on the PCB labelled 'XT' and 'AT' that 
disconnected pin 34 inthe 'XT' position.
