FYI. I have played with several distributions and had various problems
with getting my Iomega Zip 250 to work properly under Linux. I recently
purchased the Mandrake 7.1 distribution and all my problems were solved.
When the distribution is installed, the device is detected and all the
appropriate drivers/modules are loaded as part of the installation
process. I can now access my drive as if I were running that other OS
with the software from Iomega.
This distribution seems to suffer from other little irritating bugs that
cause it to freeze the system, but this may be related to my marginal 32
MB machine. I understand that this is the Linux 2.2.15 kernel.
I hope this information will be useful to someone.
