Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

first of all I know this drive works since I can use it fine with XP on the same computer. It is a Zip Plus 100 drive so it works a little different. From all the research I've done, it uses the imm module rather than the ppa module. I have tried the JaZip application that is always mentioned in all the other Zip help threads. When I run JaZip I get an error message stating, "Can't open the device /dev/sda Is there a disk in the drive?"
Yes there is, and it's vfat formated since I can only use it with XP.
It is hooked up in Parallel mode, not scsi.
So here are the stats:
After I do a insmod imm
and run dmesg I get:
