Recently got my hands on an XT clone on which the A drive is the 5.25'' 1.2mb floppy drive is the A: drive and the 1.44'' 1.44mb floppy drive is the B: drive
I want to switch so the drive letter assignments are the oposite but the jumper setting diagram on the (cheap taiwanese) floppy controller card give me no clue on how to change this.
I hope someone here can help.

Here's some pics of the card:

If what you're asking is how to make the A: drive the 1.44M and the B: drive the 1.2M, first swap the drives on the cable, so the 1.44M is connected to the "twisted" end and the B: drive is connected to the "flat" end. Then take the jumper that's currently on the 3-4 pins and move it to the 7-8 pins.

If it's not obvious, the pins on the header are numbered thus:

1357
2468
