Using a zipdrive (100MB parallel port)

This is for the 100MB parallel port zipdrive (all steps as root):
  • mkdir /zip
  • add to /etc/fstab:
    /dev/sda4     /zip     vfat     noauto,rw,users     0 0
  • run lilo
  • add the following lines at the end of /etc/rc.local:
    modprobe parport
    modprobe ppa
  • when you want to use a zipdisk, type mount /zip
