I've just tryied what you told me, and unfortunately...no luck. Consider
that 'm a stupid with this.

1) I made the changes in the /etc/conf.modules file
2) Reboot the system
3) Tried to mount it with: mount /dev/sda4 /zip
Nothing. Then tried: mount /dev/sda4 /zip

Same thing happen with the cdrom. When I tried to mount it it says: wrong
medium type.

I previously had the slackware version with a previous kernel and had no
problem with the zip nor with the cdrom. Is there something new and too
sophisticated in the red hat that I'm not aware of??

thanx

Juan.
