    Hi Tim and James

    Thanks for the tips

    I don't quite know what or how it happened but if I enter:- mount -t vfat
    /dev/sda4 /mnt/zip I can access the zip drive!
    This is despite the fact that during boot-up I still see:-

    scsi : 0 hosts
    scsi : detected total

    Without reloading Linux from the start, is there some way (or for that
    matter is it necessary?) that the ZIP Drive is "seen" during the boot stage?
