I had some difficulties getting my Iomega ZIP Plus 250Mb drive working under Linux. This is what I had to do to get it working.

 1. The imm module must be included in the kernel. To do this see Rebuilding
    the_kernel for details.
 2. Reboot your PC with your ZIP drive attached and powered on.
 3. Run lsmod to check which modules are loaded. parport_pc and imm should be
    loaded. If they're not, do the following:
       1. modprobe parport_pc
       2. modprobe imm
 4. mkdir /mnt/zip
 5. mount -t msdos /dev/sda4 /mnt/zip

Your ZIP drive should now be available to use (you can verify this by entering df -k )
