With Dan Carosone's much appreciated help (ie, he did it all :), the floppy
now works.

The trick is that with nasty cheap floppies, there's no cable guide. I
couldn't plug the cable in the way it was supposed to go. Dan noticed that
the cable guide a pre-scored notch on the PCB of the floppy drive. He
whipped out his leatherman and fixed that right up - removing the small
square. We plugged the cable in the right way, and low and behold the floppy

My other issues are

* a lack of case circulation (I'm going to get a massive case fan and see if
that'll improve things)
* netbooting doesn't work (not a biggie now that the floppy works)
* and finally getting the SRM to remember things between boots
