IF the drive selection posibilities are 1, 2, 3, 4, then you have the
right selection.

IF on the other hand, the selection possibilities are 0, 1, 2, 3. Then
you will need to select drive 0.

Theese are both assuming that your 'floppy cable' does NOT have a
'twisted' section between the 1st and 2nd drive connectors, AND that you
are plugging in to the connector closest to the 'feed' end (I.E. the
'first drive')

If you are connecting your drive to the end connector of a 'cable with a
twist', then you should have the drive jumpers set for #2 of 1-4, or #1
of 0-3.
