2.88 MB floppy drive, scsi?

My problems have always been traced to a tired tech (me) not paying
attention to some drive's ID jumpers being different on different type
cdroms, hard drives, etc. I no longer use the setting dials unless the drive
came with the case that has the dial as they have screwed me up as well.
Temrinators can be a pain too even for experinced people at times.
