    Funny. I have an older ZIP drive and it always worked - even
    with old machines and 1.2.x kernels.

    The AIC6360 is a widespread chip in a lot of boards. Its first
    use were the Adaptec AHA152x adapters. For 6360 support simply
    use the aha152x.o module ( has been around for a long time... ).
