Can you connect a Parallel 100 meg Zip Drive to an A500?  What
OS do you need to do this?  Any other special considerations?

Can you connect a parallel zip drive to an amiga; yes but it isn't easy.
You will need to do some hardware hacking as you will need to use one of
the joystick ports as well as the parallel port to connect one of these
drives. For instructions and more info check aminet hard/hacks.

There is a hardware and software hack that uses the joystick port to make
up for things missing from the Amiga papallel port.
