Ensure that your parallel port Zip drive is connected, the power to it is
on, and media in the drive.
As root, enter the following
Now cd to /proc/scsi
You should see two entries
* directory ppa
* file scsi
cat scsi and you should see if your system recognizes the zip drive.
If your system can see the drive, you should make an entry in the
/etc/fstab with the following:
/dev/sda4 /mnt/zip100.0 vfat noauto,user 0,0
Now all you should need to do is
and you should be able to have access to the zip disk.
If you are still having difficulties, let me know.
