1. Please help: RedHat6.0 Iomega 250 Parallel Zip install and config
reply on ng.
I am totally new to Linux, have to say that I really love it alot more
than Windows!!!! However, since I am new I don't know how to config
hardware....I really hope that someone outthere can help me with
installing, config and mounting with Iomega's ext 250M Parallet Port Zip
drive. I had gone through many many pages of HOW TO and still can't
find the answer at all.
Here is a simple list of hardware I have and hope it helps.
ASUS BX 440 MB, Celeron 300A, Viper770 V-card etc (don't know if any of
these will help)
Only 1 HD on IDE1
2 CD ROM (but only can mount the primary but I don't need the second
one) on IDE2
No scsi card, no printer, Lan connection which works fine. And floppy
and cdrom works fine mount and umount *cdrom is hp8110i but can't set it
to writer yet. Still need help on that too*
There is no /dev/sda4 .. line in my fstab file yet and my boot up sweep
so fast that I can't catch whether the boot up recognize my zip drive or
I already have the line as ppa host.... etc from the manual in my
When I do a insmode ppa I see about 5 lines of something.. I am at work
now so I can't type out but if someone is willing to read what I got in
there I can do a capture at home. However those 5 lines doesn't seems
to be anything associate with parallel port.
/mnt/zip is created
when I try to do a mount -t vfat (or msdos) /dev/sba4 /mnt I receive an
error saying something like the block is not recognized ro something
(will also do a capture to follow up)
Currently there is no entry in the fstab file for the like "/dev/sda4
/zip vfat user,noauto 0 0" should I add that manually?
I tried to download the imm and zipplus drivers .. no luck becasue when
doing a make it can't find any /usr/src/linux/.config ... etc
what else am I missing? Please tell me in more detail step since I am a
rookie on this...
If someone is successful setting up the iomega 250 parallel drive on
Redhat 6 (or even the 100M which I assume works the same)
please share this with me....
btw, I also have trouble setting my hp8110i (current cdrom) as a CD
writer ....if anyone did that with Redhat 6 please also let me know
Many many thanks to you all if I can get my Zip and Cd writer to work!!!
