Do you have an "autodetect" cable, or a Zip Plus drive? If so, you're
SOL, you'll have to get the imm driver. I got it with the Kernel
2.2.1.... *neither* of my Zip drives would work (my Parallel Zip Plus nor
my internal SCSI Zip Drive) until I upgraded my kernel. The SCSI card
that I have, though, is really flaky, and the 2.2.1 support works better
for it, anyway.
