    I have installed now new trial beta distribution (Rdh62beta) with kernel
    2.2.15 inside and I compiled kernel with options and modules correctly.
    After that I restarted the machine and I launched the command "dmesg" that
    you said after I did "modprobe imm command" . Then the miracle happened. I
    found in the result of "demsg command" the lines below:

    Releasing imm0
    scsi : 1 host.
    imm: Version 2.03 (for Linux 2.0.0)
    imm: Found device at ID 6, Attempting to use EPP 32 bit
    imm: Communication established with ID 6 using EPP 32 bit
    scsi1 : Iomega VPI2 (imm) interface
    scsi : 2 hosts.
      Vendor: IOMEGA Model: ZIP 100 Rev: P.05
      Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 02
    Detected scsi removable disk sdb at scsi1, channel 0, id 6, lun 0
    SCSI device sdb: hdwr sector= 512 bytes. Sectors= 196608 [96 MB] [0.1 GB]
    sdb: Write Protect is off
     sdb: sdb4

    After this good news, I managed to mount my zip100 correctly with the command
    mount -t msdos /dev/sdb4 /zip100
    It seems that recognition of zip100 device doesn't work correctly with kernel
    version older than 2.2.14.

    Thanks everybody
