old tape drive (conner ctt800) and mandrake 10.0

hi, i found an old tape drive (conner ctt800i-f) and i'm trying to install it on my mandrake, but i have some little problems.

this tape drive must be connected into the floppy interface of the mother board as secondary floppy. So, in the bios what is the config, i must put the secondary floppy as 1.44mb, or let as default (None)?

my mandrake kernel 2.6.3 don't have the module ftape, so i recompiled the kernel with the ftape options: what are the exact configuration for it
