Hi, I have been running RH 7.3 on my laptop for nearly a year now and have had no major problems until i tried to get a iomega zip 100 to work on it. The zip drive comes with linux drivers but i think i need to install USB modules to get it to work. If anyone knows what modules and how to install them i would be much appricated!

The command lsmod will list loaded modules

You need

See man pages for modprobe to load.

Check the output of dmesg for USB device.

The zip drive device will be /dev/sda. To mount the zip drive create a directory for the mount point:
mount -t vfat /dev/sda4 /mnt/zip

Add an entry in your /etc/fstab just like amy other FAT32 partition except add the noauto option so the drive will not be mounted at boot time.
