switch settings for a Mistubishi MR535-U00 ???

Actually, only the upper three of the rightmost four switches stay off. The
one marked 'R' has to be on for radial selection to work. I don't know what
happens if it's off, but that's no matter. I think it 's intended for use
where there's only one drive.

This isn't for a PC, so the WD controller probably isn't relevant. I'm
setting up to use a WD 1002-05 to handle both the floppy and hard disks on a
small SBC.
