Is it an internal or external zip drive? If external, is it connected to parallel or usb port? It makes a difference because of the driver you will need. Internal zip drive use the ppa module; extenal connected to parallel port use the ppa if it's the only device on the port, and imm if the printer is slaved to the zip drive. I don't know which driver the usb zip drive requires.
Then you need to make a mount point for the zip drive. 'mkdir /mnt/zip' would work. In fact, you can make the mount point anywhere you want it. Then add it to /etc/fstab: /dev/sda4 /mnt/zip auto auto,users 0 0
Now load the driver: modprobe ppa (for internal drive)
modprobe ppa (for external parallel port drive without printer)
modprobe imm (for external parallel port drive with printer slaved to zip)
If you don't have the imm driver, you can get it from the zip website.
