    If it's a ZIP 100, the driver you need is called 'ppa'. If it's a ZIP
    250, you need 'imm'.

    Just type 'modprobe imm' (or ppa) to load the driver. The device will
    appear as a SCSI disk, and will probably only have the fourth primary
    partition filled in, so for example:

    # mkdir /mnt/zip
    # mount /dev/sda4 /mnt/zip
