>  how can I address a parallel device (mainly my zip drive)

Umm.. probably Mr. ZIP drive, or Mr. Parallel device?

heh.. ok, sorry.. was just being facetious there..

Anyway, the whole process of getting a Parallel device(ZIP drive) to
run in Linux is explained in the ZIP-DRIVE mini howto,

1. parallel zip drive + additional parallel card

Hi all,

I need more storage spaces on my computer. After all things considered,
I am about to purchase a parallel version zip drive. Also considering to
get myself an additional parallel card, since I've heard that it is
impossible to use parallel zip and printer simultaneously.

The problem is I don't know how to do it, where to start.... in one word
I have no idear how I can get these things done. Of course, I have
already read the zip mini howto but I could not understand it very well
due to my limited knowledge. Oh, I am using Red Hat Linux 5.1.

Please help me. Thanks in advance.
