Mount Iomega Zip 250 MB parellel drive


I work with FC6 64bit.
This IOMEGA drive works since 1999. I was looking the way to load this drive into FC6, but only found a pair of examples using a IMM library (what is no longer exist) for older linux kernel.
Iomega haves drivers only for Win98/2000/XP, no Linux/Vista/7 support.
The floppys are FAT16 native IOMEGA preformat.
I believe FC6 can load this drive. Is there a command to do it, using internal libraries?

You sure the imm driver doesn't exist? I have a CentOS 6 system and if I do
Code:
modprobe imm
it loads the imm module without a glitch. You need also the parport and parport_pc modules to work with parallel ports. I cannot test it right now, because I have not my IOMEGA 100 ZIP at hand, so I cannot provide more details. I remember the IOMEGA zip requires the /dev/sda4 partition to work.
