I guess that was me talking. I'm a bit of a special case, in that I have
this little device called "Amiga Disk Driver" that plugs into the Amiga's
external floppy port and wires up to a standard PC 3.5" floppy mechanism.
To use the external IBM 5.25" drive, all I should have to do is build an
adapter cable to the 37-pin connector on the IBM drive.

Without this "Amiga Disk Driver" thingamy one would have to perform the
(minor) magic performed in an external Amiga floppy drive some other way.
I'm afraid I can't help you there.
