Can you point me to information about getting a Zip Drive internal ATAPI
version working under LINUX.  Thanks

1. Atapi Zip drive setup


I had this workink before, but had to reformat hd for larger Linux...

I followed directions in mini how-to for atapi install, and followed the
advice of the Linux Gazette (all of this can be found at,
under how-to's.

Anyway, I attempt to mount (mount /mnt/zip), and I get this:

mount:  the kernel does not recognize /dev/sda4 as a block device
        (maybe 'insmod driver'?)

Funny thing is, it does list as a block device (brw-rw...)

Can any guru help?)
