The last 5.25" external drive I saw connected up to a parallel port.

I would need to dig, but I think I still have an IBM PS/2 external 5.25" drive in the box.

I also have an old 386 system that should boot up that does have a 5.25" drive in it.

ebay is the only place I found any drives for sale. All the controllers I saw were ISA bus though.

Best bet would be to check with computer recycling and resale companies in your area.
