Ok, sorry for the obvious questions..but you compiled the SCSI support to
get the ZIP drive to work?  As well, your ZIP drive isn't connectec with a
printer like you could in windoze?

I mount my ZIP driver as follows:

"mount /dev/sd0 /mnt/zip"  I was told to try /dev/sd* and it worked for
me.  Hope this helps.
