    Hey, Folks,

        Please, take a look at the output of imm (using dmesg):

    imm: Version 2.03 (for Linux 2.0.0)
    imm: Found device at ID 6, attempting to use EPP 16 bit
    imm: Communication established with ID 6 using EPP 16 bit
    scsi0 : Iomega VBI2 (imm) interface
    scsi : 1 host.
    Vendor: IOMEGA Model : ZIP 100 Rev: P.04
    Type: Direct-Access ANSI ASCI revision: 02
    Detected scsi removable disk sda at scsi0, channel 0, id 6, lun 0
    SCSI devise sda: hdwr sector= 512 bytes . Sectors= 196608 [96 MB) [0.1 GB]
    sda: write Protect is off
    sda: sda1 sda2 sda3 sda4

        Everything sound's great, right ? Wrong !

        When I try to mount ( mount -t vfat /dev/sda4 /mnt/zip ) the task appear to hang and nothing happens.
        Neither a error message.
        I can't even kill the task.

        I am using [arallel port configured as EPP and kernel 2.2.14
        I tried ppa and give me an error. I bought my ZIP on December/2000 so I think I have a new ZIP (ZIP PLUS), is that right ?

        Any idea what's going on ?
