Yup, that should work. You'll just have to play around with the
jumpers to figure out how to select the additional FD-502 drive as
drive one. (Unfortunately, my notes on this are packed away, so I
can't tell you offhand.) The FD-502 5-1/4" drives are much like
3-1/2" drives: same power connector (smaller molex-style) and built-
in termination (so you don't need to bother remembering to terminate
the last drive on the cable).
