What was the command you used to mount these ZIP disks? Windows-formatted
ZIPs almost always get mounted like this, where X corresponds to the
place the IDE cable is attached (a,b,c,d--usually d):
mount -t vfat /dev/hdX4 /mnt/zip
mount -t vfat /dev/hdX1 /mnt/zip
ZIP disks these days are usually partitioned such that all their data is
on partition 4, but there are some odd ones that live on partition 1.
Which kernel are you using? The 2.2.5 kernel that shipped with RedHat 6.0
and SuSE 6.1 had some problems with ZIP disks. These have been fixed in
any kernel higher than 2.2.7--make sure this is not your problem....
