[sebhc] Diskette Drives

Very few 5.25" drives have head load solenoids.  Normally, the head is
always loaded when the diskette is in the drive and the door is closed.

The second difference is that the PCs don't use the head load solenoid
(if the drive is so equipped; Tandons don't have it). Heath does use it;
so you have to jumper the drive to load the head when selected. The
jumper is labelled something like "HS".
