came across 3 Seagate ST351A/X hard drives at a thrift today. thought I would try installing one in my Commodore Colt but i'm not having any luck. I have enabled the on board XT interface for the drive but no matter how I set the jumpers on the drive I get "hard drive not found". I can hear the drives spinning up and the LED activity light comes on but cant get it working. can anyone tell me the exact jumper settings so I know for sure that's not the issue.

Also my machine has an early BIOS so I know i'm limited to 20MB
