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!
Regards

The command lsmod will list loaded modules

You need
usbcore
usb-uhci
usb-storage
scsi-mod
sr_mod

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.
