Semi-OT: Has any interfaced a 360K floppy to a pentium-class PC?

Can't make my Toshiba 360K floppy drive work on my Athlon or
P4 machine to save my life. I've tried every jumper setting
I can think of on the drive. The best I get is a disk
where I try to access the drive, and the LED comes on and
the disk for a while, then fails.

Yes, I'm using the right cable. :) It has a 34 pin header
(remember those?) that used to be standard on floppy cables
those years ago. Jameco still sells them. :)
Yes, I set the BIOS to 360K. Still no dice.

Anybody have any clues as to what might be going wrong?

Thanks, even if nobody has any ideas. :)
