Hey, anybody out there know how to 
modify the Atari XF551 drive to read
and write and etc. a 3.5 inch disk?

As far as I know, there is no way to
do that.  The chips and mechanisms
are so different that you would do
better trying to get your 8-bit
to run ST software.  Why not just buy
a 3.5" drive and see NNNif it'll work
with a Percom controller?
