[PARPORT] Zip drive

Sun, 21 Mar 1999 11:19:19 -0800 (PST)

Following Tim Waugh's advice, I started linux with lp=0x378, forcing the printer driver to leave alone the port my Zip drive was on. It looks like the ppa driver actually got a nibble, but it doesn't look health. Now what? How do I mount this thing? I note that the capacity is given as 1 GB, when it's only a 100 mb Zip.

The following is from /var/log/messages:
