Having trouble publicly mounting a zip.

Having trouble publicly mounting a zip.

Post by DR TE$TH & THE ELECTRIC MAYH » Tue, 25 Aug 1998 04:00:00

I'm having a bit of trouble getting the zipdrive on a redhat 2.0.34 to mount in
such a way as to be publicly readable _and_ writable.  I have
/dev/hdd4               /mnt/zip                msdos   user            0 0
in the mnttab.  I am able, as a generic user, to mount and unmount the file
system, as well as access it through smbd (read and write,) but I can't seem to
get it to mount so that a local user has access to it.

Any ideas?

1. Having problems mounting atapi zip


        The problem that I have is trying to mount a MSDOS zip under 2.2.7.  I
can mount one that I have a UFS on with no problem.  However, when I try
to mount this MSDOS cartridge I get an error message about having a bad
superblock.  I can take this same MSDOS cartridge and read and write to
it in another computer that has an identical ATAPI zip drive.  What
should I do to mount this drive?  Thanks
