        Hi! I am having trouble with Iomega's Zip Plus Drive. The drive
is connected to the parallel port. I recompiled the kernel with
modules, scsi and scsi disk support as directed by the how-to and
then downloaded and compiled the Zip Plus driver. I then added the line
                insmod imm
to my boot.local file.
        Upon bootup, this is the message I get pertaining to the zip

        imm: Version 0.18
        imm: Probing port 03bc
        imm: Probing port 0378
        imm: SPP port present
        imm: EPP 1.7
        imm: Probing port 0278
        scsi0 : Iomega ZIP Plus drive
        scsi : 1 host.

I tried to mount the zip disk with:
         mount -t vfat /dev/sda4 /zip
and get the message:
        mount: the kernel does not recognize /dev/sda4 as a block device
       (maybe `insmod driver'?)

        I'm now at a loss...since I followed the how-to basically to a
T...does anyone have any suggestions on what I could be missing? Thanks!
