Configuring a ZIP Plus 250Mb drive
I had some difficulties getting my Iomega ZIP Plus 250Mb drive working under Linux. This is what I had to do to get it working.
1. The imm module must be included in the kernel. To do this see Rebuilding the_kernel for details. 2. Reboot your PC with your ZIP drive attached and powered on. 3. Run lsmod to check which modules are loaded. parport_pc and imm should be loaded. If they're not, do the following: 1. modprobe parport_pc 2. modprobe imm 4. mkdir /mnt/zip 5. mount -t msdos /dev/sda4 /mnt/zip
Your ZIP drive should now be available to use (you can verify this by entering df -k )
