   That's the usual ID 1-2-4 jumpers, then. On most narrow drives the
jumper pairs share ground, hence the single ground wire on your ID cable.

   *Usually*, if the drive has ID jumpers at the "back" alongside the
50-pin connector and power connector, the bottom row are the ground
pins. Shouldn't hurt anything if you get it upside down, except it will
only work on ID 2 (ID 0 won't because it's the controller on an Indigo,
