1.2Mb Teac Floppy Question

OK, the drive isn't a classic, but the computer it's going into definitly
is. I finally got the CatWeasel Controller for the Amiga that I've been
wanting. I'm putting it in a A2000 since that's the only thing I've got
that can take a
5 1/4" floppy drive. I picked up a new Teac FD55BV-16-U floppy drive, and
can't seem to get it to work with the controller. I think the problem is
that I need to change the jumper settings. So I'm wondering if anyone has
the jumper settings for one of these drives.

As for the CatWeasel Controller, it's a controller that allows you to use
normal PC floppy drives on an Amiga (they also make a PC version). It has
the added benifit of being able to read numerous disk formats, which is why
I got it. Once I get it figured out I'll write up a review for the list
since I think it might be of serious intrest to every one here as a way to
copy old floppies onto an archival CD-R or whatever media you want.
