    I found this terrific reference this evening.  It
answers many of my questions.  It seems to be a MUST READ
for anyone working with computer hardware configurations.

     And here is the basic 40-pin connector scheme.  The
Ultra DMA ribbon cable uses 80 wires, with every other
wire being a ground wire to bleed off stray signals that
might interfere with high speed transmission:

     Pin Signal                    Pin Signal

 1 Drive Reset                 2 Ground
 3 Data Line Bit 7             4 Data Line Bit 8

Yes.  Please award the "points" (all 'zero' of them) assigned to this question to me, since that seems to be the only question that you're asking.
