I never used it.
Thinking about the past, perhaps I used a 400 MHz AMD K6... I'm not sure. is a TSR (Terminate and Stay Resident) patch for running ReadADF on PCs with processors faster than 266MHz. I've attached it below.

It was a .gif, I think, showing where to make the connections etc.
Cable schematic is attached below.

This program has enough interesting features (retries, etc.) to justify trying to make it run smoothly, plus it's not closed source like the others you mention.

Yep, that's what's recommended. My cable is shorter than that but, because it was designed for the Disk2FDI program, it has two wires and it's a twisted pair (but I can't remember whether twisting them was recommended or not). Now I'm wondering whether screening it might help prevent interference and thus improve the speed and performance of the ReadADF program.
