What exactly do you mean by making it DF0:? Taking it out of the enclosure and putting the drive mechanism inside an amiga?

If it is similar to the MPF-420-1, you can just check it responds to select 0 from the jumpers at the back and plug it in.

If indeed you mean replace the internal drive with the Sony then yes, here are the modifications you need to make for it to work: http://jope.fi/drives/mpf420-1/

If it was already used as an Amiga external drive, chances are that it has already been modified somewhat.
